Record Enrollment Spurs Expansion 

Four Story Building to nave library, classrooms, language 
lao., audio visual room, student's lounge and cafeteria. 



FINANCED BY A system of pledges similar to the method used in 
the Diocesan Building Campaign, the alumnae, students and friends 

of St. Joseph s College for Women hope to erect a new building. With 
a minimum goal of $400,000 to be realized by May 1965. Sister Vincent 
Therese has already sought the help of the alumnae and their response has 
been gratifying. 

Most of the alumnae are amazed to discover that the latest addition to 
St. Joseph's is the quadrangular main Ijuilding which was erected in 1950 
It would be unrealistic to assume that the same physical plant which housed 
200 girls in 1950 can supply the needs of 560 girls in 1965. To avoid the 
unhappy alternative of turning away hundreds of qualified students, the 
College must expand. 

We call upon our alumnae, therefore, to help us make the expansion 
program a success. There will be many who cannot take an active part in 
assisting the drive. I he commitments of family life, work and other service 
are understandable. (Indeed we would bo worried if these did not exist 
at all.) From this number we ask a genuine interest and the cooperation 
that their ingenuity will suggest. 

For those who can take a more active part there will be the clerical, 
typing and mailing jobs that lh<' pledge system of fund raising entails. 
If you can giv<- us some of your time let us know immetliately. so ttiat wlxii 
the Memorial ['base of the campaign begins in January wi' will be organized 

for success. Library -St ' 




2-15 Clinton Avenue. T/iis is the house that the 
Sisters of St. Joseph purchased in 1918 when the 
quarters of their two year old college at 29> \\'os/i- 
ington Avenue proved incideciuate. U was from 
this house that the first class of twelve students 
graduated in 1920. Of all the huildinqs on Clinton 
Avenue. 2-15 is perhaps most dear to the alumnae. 
Today this huilding houses the chapel, the parlors. 
the guest dining rooms and the reception rooms. 



Campus Clinton Avenue. A wintry view of the 
outdoor stage which is dedicated to the memory 
of the late Archhishop Thomas E. Molloy. Situ- 
ated at the far end of the Campus on Clinton 
Avenue, this outdoor stage n\ahes an impres.tive 
setting for the A/ass of the Holy Cthost. Baccalaii

243 Clinton Avenue. This quadrangular 
shaped budding erected in /930 houses class- 
rooms, labs, administrative offices, alumnae 
room, auditorium and extra-curricular club 
rooms. 



236 Clinton Avenue. This is the faculty house 
for the priests who teach at St. Joseph's Col- 
lege. Many will remember when parish priests 
were able to dedicate part of their day to 
teaching at St. Joseph's College. Numbered 
among these priest teachers were the late 
Archbishop Thomas E. Molloy, Monsignor 
William T. Dillon, Monsignor Francis X. 
Fitz Gibbons. Monsignor Joseph Wiest, 
Father Charles Diviney and Father William 
Granger Ryan. Today, the part-time teacher 
can no longer supply the needs of the large 
student body.

2(>') Clinton Avenue. Since its pur- 
chase in 1036 this four-story brown- 
stone house has served as a library 
for St. Josepfi's C^olleqe students. Al- 
though the present library is recog- 
nized as one of the best in the country 
among the women's colleges, the 
growth of the student body has made 
it essential to expand library facil 
ities. 



/ /icoloiflan Views Man 
Existciilially 



At a rcceixl mccliiiq of the unAcrgmcluales. RoverenA Paul /:. McKeerer 
Irau'd the parallelism between the last Vatican Council and the present Ecu 
menical Council which he summarized in his cor\cluding paragraphs as lollows: 

The most impxirtant single meaninc of the last 92 years is the effectiveness 
of the authority of the Chiirrh. T\vs is to disrrifio the cause, and not to pene- 
trate the effect. Put it all toCetlxr — the pliilosophlral. the political, the social ancf 
scholarly achievements — the emergence of Catholic action — all these achieve- 
ments—what is their deeper meaning? I believe the Catholic of today realizes 
more profoundly than the Catholic before the First X'atican Council the 
theological dimension of man's existence. Theology, that Queen of Sciences, is 
the great mediator which joins faith and reason, and shows so clearly the 
continuity between man's natural endowment and his supernatural goal. It is a 
mediator because it not only shows the relevance of man's reason to the under- 
standing of faith, but because it also shows the relevance of faith to the under- 
standing of reason. Theology insists that man be taken e.xistentially — that is. 
as he concretely exists — and he concretely exists as a being with a natural body 
and soul called to the supernatural life of grace. The life of grace means the 
life of God Himself in the soul, and everyone is called to that life, and there 
is no other inner meaning to life. 

Saint Thomas More once wrote a book called Utopia, in which he exercises 
his ability for deep satire. Disgusted with the world around him. he tried to 
show how man could live on the natural level of existence if he followed certain 
rules. His inner thought was that if man could live such a life on the natural 
plane, he should obviously be able to do better with the aid of grace and revela- 
tion. An effective literary device, but that is all it is. Man cannot live on a 
natural plane; he could have, had he not given Adam the life of grace, but he 
did. and it was lost, and the human fact is incomprehensible with realizing that 
man now lives and always has lived with the call of God hovering over his spirit. 

Before the Vatican Council, many Catholic thinkers of the 1 9th Century 
lost the sense of the absolute relevance of theology to the understanding of the 
human situation. There were Catholic philosophers who evolved systems of 
thought as if theology didn't exist. They forgot that theology has grasp of the 
essential truth, which is the inner dynamism of man's interior life as effected 
by the call to grace. Some of these philosophers said that human reason could 
not know truth with certainty. They were known as Fidelists and Traditional- 
ists. They forgot the relevance of the theological truth that man's reason can 
know truth. Others were convinced that the human mind and reason were so 
powerful that they could penetrate into the inner meaning of the great Christian 
mysteries, like th<- Trinity and the Incarnation. They forgot the theological truth 
that the human mind is incapable of comprehending fully the divine mysteries. 
The Church, in the First X'atican Council, swept away these errors, and cleaned 
up the debris of a century. It was by no accident that the one theologian who 
untlerslood %\ell what theology meant to reason and what reason meant to 
theology, was singled out for praise. Indeed the deepest praise of all. because 
Saint Thomas doctrine was the heart and soul of the Church leaching at 
Vatican I with respect to faith and reason. 

Today the informed Catholic knows the theological dimension of man s 
existence. He doesn t thereby feel absolved of using his powers carefully to know 
natural truth, like science and history: to the contrary, he knows better than ever 
that ihi-re is no substitute for hard work in the intellectual sphere. But he does 
know that when you discuss philosophy, economics, sociology, and all the disci- 
plines which deal with man as man. theology acts in a positive and negative way 
to shed light and provide guidance. Positively if prisents man with the truths of 
faith, and bids him try to understand their relevance: negatively it strikes down 
errors which are incompatible with faith. Theology forbids us to speculate about 
man as if in a vacuum: it insists lh.it we look at man as he really is. 




An Alumna\ 



When Pat Dcvine McMacken '-1 
read "A i^ew Look at W'ortin. 
W'icps" in America she disagree' 
so completely with the author 
thesis that she felt compelled i 
write a letter to the editor. Fathc 
Thurston Davis. Editor of .\meric 
thought so highly of Pat s letter tht 
he printed it. i^ow we reprint it an 
hope that some more of the alumna 
will write and let us knoii' the 
thoughts on this subject. 

TO THE EDITOR: "A New Look i 
Working Wives could be a call fc 
a fresh defense of the vocation < 
marriage. I think I may be typic; 
of many wives whose great joy is i 
being the heart of the home. I enjo 
being the center of loving, and en 
ating the atmosphere of love I 
which my husband can retreat a(tc 
a day in the sometimes hostile worl 
of business affairs. 

More, I enjoy this as a full-lin 
job. From limited experience. I ha\ 
few good memories of the mori ■ 
ing hours on the "hurr>-up-and-gf 
the - house-in-order - so-we-can-get-d 
work " treadmill or of the other ci 
of the career day. forging throut 
dinner and dishes with all haste. 
Sfjueeze out a few moments of r 
laxation with my husband. In n 
present role — that of a full-tin 
housewife — I am always prepare 
to care for my husband and n 
home. Other obligations or commi 
ments have no precedence. 




Look at Working Wives 



Our marriage partnership is a 
partnership because each of us is 
able to work in his own sphere. As 
head of the home, he is not dis- 
tracted by the countless less-than- 
major decisions for which I, as a 
full-time housewife, have ample 
time. We are free, this way. to make 
the truly major decisions together. 

He is the provider of material 
things for this family. His competi- 
tion in this field does not include 
me. I can listen to his office experi- 
ences and problems without match- 
ing them with accounts of my day 
at the office. 

I have long since come to a deep 
belief in marriage as a vocation, 
C^od s calling, not necessarily allow- 
ing of division into primary and 
secondary. I have never been 
tempted to think of this calling as 
llie only thing left after others have 
been tried and found wanting. I 
was not "stuck" with this life be- 
cause I couldn't make the grade at 
something else. It is my special call- 
ing, my role in life. When I ac- 
cepted the role, I knew it would 
contain hardships and joys, which I 
nave accepte<| equally and with no 
reservations. I did not have a way 
out planned in case I got fwred with 
the menial tasks that go with being 
a housewife. 

On my marriage flay, the |)riesl 
read me the Admonition: 

. . . and if true love iirifl the un- 



selfish spirit of perfect sacrifice 
guide your every action, you can 
expect the greatest measure of 
earthly happiness that may be al- 
lotted to man in this vale of tears. 
I heard in these words a promise that 
is not made to any others than Chris- 
tion married people — not to priests, 
nuns, brothers or those who choose 
the single state. If I would learn 
selflessness — sacrifice — ^ for the love 
of my husband, 1 was promised even 
earthly happiness. It was worth 
trying. 

As a Catholic college graduate 
with a degree in mathematics and 
economics, I was willing to create 
a "void" in the world of business 
and devote my time to creating a 
love nest." So I reapplied this edu- 
cation to doing the best possible job 
in my new vocation. 

As time went on. I realized thai 
the promise was being fulfilled, and 
earthly happiness was a reality. 
True, the hardships and problems 
came along, too, but the continuing 
sacramental grace of marriage was 
always with us to help us over these 
occasional rough spots. 

It is next to impossible for me to 
believe that my talents, whatever 
thr'y are, are buried in the house 
dust. As a full-time housewife, I am 
happy. I am content, I am fulfilled, 
I am loved and I am in love.

Authors 

I Have Known 

The Class of 1961 established a fund 
to subsidize an annual lecture by a dis- 
tinguished contemporary scholar. This year 
the lecture was given by Arnold Lunn, 
the noted English scholar, journalist and 
convert. 

ABOUT George Bernard Shaw — 

a superficial thinker — had no knowledge 

of the history of the period of Joan of Arc 

— despite historical inaccuracies St. Joan 
is Shaw's best play. 

George Orwell — 

a man of great integrity — although he 
supporttd the Loyalists in the Spanish 
Civil War he was forced to renounce 
Communism because of his intellectual 
honesty — this renunciation is reflected in 
Animal Farm and in 1984. 
Graham Greene — 

a natural rebel — an irresistible tendency 
to disagree with and criticize authority — 
considers him to be one of the greatest 
contemporary writers along with Waugh. 

Evelyn Waugh — 

on a par with Greene (or perhaps better) 

— recommended his satire of modern so- 
ciety and war — singled out The Lx>ved 
One for its excellent satire on the elab- 
orate funeral services of contemporary life. 
Aldous Huxley — 

seldom reads anything but the lives of the 
saints — Huxley admired St. Benedict s 
refusal of Roman political office in order 
to retire to desert.

KINGSTON — POUCHKEEPSIE — ENVIRONS 

Are any of you who live in this neighborhood resigned 
or retired New York City teachers? 

Public School 615, MANHATTAN, is located in 
Willwyck School, I'.sopiis, on Route QW. a few miles 
south of Kingston, a few miles north of the Mid-Hudson 
liridge. a few miles away from the Thruway. 

If you are in the vicinity, and have or can achieve a 
New York City substitute teacher's license, P.S. 613M will 
be very glad to hear from you. Because of our unusual 
situation, we have no per diem substitutes, and would be 
glad to have your name on file. If you almost f|ualified 
for a substitute license, but did not get it because of 
moving awa\- from the city, illness, needing a few e.xtra 
courses, come in anyway and ask to see our Principal, Mr, 
Canosa: perhaps he could arrange for an emergency 
examination. 



In I'ither event, whether you have a license or think \<>u 
might possibly get one, (omi- in and see our school. I ou 
may decide you could function here as a per dirni •.ubsli- 
tiili' with a high degree of satisfaction to yoursill — ihc 
work h<Te IS hard, but it is NOT insuperably difficult, 
and it has its own very special rewards. 

So come and look over our setup, and bring any of your 
friends who are in the same situation — licensees or almost 
licensees. We'll be- glad to see you and to show you 
around.

From the Presidents Desk 



MERRY CHRISTMAS 
/MPPY NEW YEAR 



Even.- girl comes lo St. Joseph s College because 
she wants to become a better Christian woman. 
It is here that she hopes to develop the inwardness 
and supernatural orientation that a liberal arts 
college rooted in the Christian tradition can supplv. 
In this type of education one will find no evidence 
of compromise with the pagan standards that 
engender arduous and frustrating commercial com- 
petition. 

Our alumnae have found their fulRliment in 
the service of Ciod. their neighbor and their home: 
they have contributed a significant share to the 
professional, political and social life of their respec- 
tive communities. It is their achievements that 
have given St. Joseph's College the reputation for 
excellence if now enjoys. Their dedicated service 
in the contemporary world has urged us to expand 
the College so that more girls may reap the fruits 
of Christian education.

Joan Costa, '57, compiled the fol- 
lowing survey: 



Tlie statistics presented Kere are based on the number o 
graduates who responded (948). not on the total numbe 
of alumnae (2500). The total number of responses to an- 
one question will var>', since not all questions were ap 
plicable to each alumna and since not everyone who replie* 
answered ever\' question: 

An Occupational Picture: 

Teaching is clearly the leading occupation among th 
alumnae. The highest proportion is among the graduate 
of the 1920's: the lowest in the 1940's. Appro.ximately '/ 
of the graduates of the 1930's and 1950s are teaching. 

The second leading occupation is that of housewife, an 
the proportions are inversely related to teaching. Tli 
lowest proportion is among the graduates of the 1920; 
the highest in the 1910s. 

Business is a very poor third. The lowest pcrccntagi 
are in the 1920s and 1930"s; the highest in the 1930' 
Social work is the only other area in which the alumna 
are represented consistently in each decade, and the nun 
ber is very small. Again, however, the greatest frequenc 
is in the 1930's. 

See Figure 1. 



Marriage and Family Life: 

Well over 50% of the alumnae from each decaae nave 
married, witfi a peak of 77% in the 1920s. Clearly, most 
of those who marr\- do so within six years of graduation. 
There has been a steadily increasing rate of marriage 
within the first year after graduation. None of the gradu- 
ates of the 1020 s married less than one year after gradu- 
ation while 25% of the graduates of the 1950s were 
married during the first year after graduation. An increas- 
ing number of alumnae worl< Outside the home after mar- 
riage, particularly as full time or substitute teachers. It 
would seem that our alumnae are true to the national 
trend which indicates thai more and more college gradu- 
ates work outside the home after marriage and continue 
to do so \\ hilc raising a family. 

See Figure 2. 

The average married alumna has 2.9 children; the .sons 
slightly outnumber the daughters. When the percentages 
are computed by decades the average graduate of the 
10-10 s has 3.7 children. Almost all of the girls are under 
19 (college age) and a large proportion of the graduates 
stale that they would encourage their daughters to come 
to Saint .Joseph s. As one alumna put it . . . 

I can honestly say that the goals toward which we 

worked have influenced my life . . . transferring 

strongly to my daughters. 

Our graduates have overwhelmingly elected to send 

their children lo Catholic schools. Percentages for every 

level, except kindergarten, in each decade, range from 55% 

to 100%. The mean is .71. On the kindergarten level. 

almost 60% attended Catholic kindergarten in the 1930's 

and 1940's. The drastic reduction to 3% in the 1950's is 

probably due to the closing of Catholic kindergartens under 

pressure of the teaching shortage. 

See Figure 3. 

Education : 

Well over % of the alumnae who replied to the ques- 
tionnaire went on for graduate study. The largest number 
earned the degree of Master of Arts with an increase of 
.Master of Science in Education degrees in the later years. 
.A total of fourteen people who responded had earned the 
I h.lJ. degree. Nine earned degrees in Library Science, 
wven in Law and two in I^ledicine. 

See Figure 4. 

Since teaching is the principal occupation of our 
alumnae, it is interesting to note the distribution of teach- 
ing license.s and certificates which they hold. Over 50%) 
of the graduates of the 1020's have Common liranch 
license*. This falls off during tfie thirties and rises again 
•o 31% during the fifties. The numbr-r in elementary edu- 
cation it. on the whole, considerafjiy bigfier than the niim-

Leisure Ti.me ANr> Co.m.munity Activities: 

St. Joseph's ahimnae throughout the decades report two 
favorite h-isure time activities — people and reading. Next 
in popularity are attending the theatre, opera, dance, music 
and museums. Watching T.V. has a low rating through- 
out the data. Many alumnae indicated that their interest 
had been sparked by some of the activities of the college. 
One graduate commented: 

The courses were exciting and opened new and 
lasting fields of interest. 

See Figure 5. 

The majorit>' of our graduates are presently engaged ir 
some form of community activity with the predominant 
number active in PT.\ groups. Scouting is high on the llsl 
with general hospital and Red Cross worlt also popular 
Among the recent graduates few hold official positions ii 
community groups, but in the 20's. 30's and 40's as man- 
hold or have held official positions as do not. 

Outstanding as a source of motivation for engaging ii 
community service was the category "course of study 
ihe curriculum rather than the extra-curricular activities o 
sitident government emphasis seems to be the driving lorci 
Ixhind the development of outside interests for the welfar 
of fellow man. 

Membership in parish activities and other religious or 
conizations is even more widespread. With the exceptioi 
of recent graduates the answer to this question was I es 
three times as often as "No".

Expansion and Development: 

An average of 72% of the alumnae were enthusiasti 
about the proposed development fund. 27% were undi 
cided and 1 % was opposed to the idea. 

The following tabulation represents the attitudes of th 
alumnae concerning an expansion program: 

28% think a library should be considered first. 
27% feel the college should be relocated first. 
25% think a science building should be considere 

first. 
13% favor a child study center. 
4% favor a student union building. 
3% favor a gymnasium and auditorium. 
The greatest percentage (40%) of the alumnae fe^

Teen Ryan A/iif/iol/anr/ ')'). dauqhler of ^larietta Rocke- 
feller Ryan 26. is now living with her hiisliand. Dr. Philip 
A/ul/io/larif/. and their si.x months old daughter. Patricia 
f^larie. in Honduras. In the following copy, Dr. Mulhol- 
land explains how he and Teen became interested in this 
missionary work of the lay apostolatc. 



I would like to fell you about an outpatient 
clinic in Honduras in which my wife and I plan 
to spend the next two years. 

We wen- introduced to this acHvit\' by the Pro- 
fessional Placement ser\-ices of the Catholic Medi- 
cal Mission Board in New York City. Father John 
C. Murphy, a Jesuit from the Missouri Province, 
has available in his parish in El Projjreso. a build- 



ing which he describes as 120 feet in lenclli. f'ather 
Murphy has written: 

"Here, in l".l Proijreso. ifondiiras. we arc in dire 
need of .1 day clinic for tlic [wor. .^lany times, in 
my rounds to thr- [X)or sections of town. I find 
whole families who are sick. For instance, tomor- 
row I am eoinC to take a little girl to the hospital, 
(about 50 miles from here), who has an awful open 
sore around a section of the left lunc This sore 
has been runiiinc pus for several months. When I 
suegesled a visit to the hospital to licr father, he 
said that he woind brini; two other ciiildren along 
who were also sick. The father is very poor and 
rides out on his bike to the fruit camps each day to 
sell mecit. Some days he do<-sn t sell any and has 
to try to peddle it around town when he gets home 
late in the day. He told me Saturday that he spent 
.SI.SO for some rice and f)eans — that was to supply 
the family of eight for the coming week. That is 
just one family — but there are hundreds in the 
same condition here. These people are apt ma- 
terial' for thr- Communists who are continually on 
the move and in dailv contact with these families 
who are in distress. PlJ-I.-KSF I UiLP US SA\'F 

THESE PEOPLE - THEY WILL BE MOST 
GRATEFLT TO YOU." 

In addition to myself and my wife Teen (a 
school teacher) and 3 month old daughter, Pa- 
tricia, Miss ."^largaret Frederickson. a registered 
nurse, from Hackensack. New Jersey has \olun- 
teered for this work. We expect to be contributing 
to the medical care of a cit>' of some 12.000 people 
and another 24,000 in the neighboring area — 
when we can get the clinic set up. Miss Frederick- 
son will leave as soon as her transportation can be 
arranged, and I plan to depart in mid-March 1Q65. 
United Fruit Company has kincfly agreed to fur- 
nish transportation on their ships and will ship 
from New ^'ork whatever we can accumulate at 
the .time of our sailing in March. 

We are starting from the ground floor. TTie 
Catholic Medical Mission Board has promised us 
a part of our initial supplies but their assistance is 
necessariry limited since their obligation is to the 
Catholic Missions as a whole. We are therefore 
turning to our friends to help us with our initial 
supply problem and likewise as a continuing source 
of support from home. 

Some of the ways in which you might be of 
assistance: 

1. EQUIPMENT; Medical equipment from 
physicians' offices, suitable for our outpatient clinic 
needs and which is still usable, can be of great 
value to us. We need minor surgical instruments, 
an autoclave, vaginal speculums. spinal tap sets, 
equipment for a basic laboratory, material for 
orthopedic casting, etc. 

2. SAMPLES: Likewise if you have some 
usable samples, especially antibiotics and anthel- 
minthics. even small quantities. 

5. Finally, if none of the above requests are 
possible or convenient, you could always send a 
check. I will see that it is properly acknowledged 
by the Jesuit Mission in El Progreso for tax pur- 
poses. 

The desire to help others is inherent in human 
nature and I know that a venture such as this is 
not as far removed from our thoughts as we some- 



Htnes care to admit. Circumstances seem to permit 
the opportunity- to go out into the field to a hmited 
few but we hope you can share in our good fortune 
by some form of moral or material support to the 
work we will be doing. 



K.\TE CUSACK REPORTS ON BRAZIL 

Barra Mansa is just off the Via Presidente Dutra, 
main highway between Sao Paulo and Rio. About 
25.000 people live in the city, center of commerce, 
with another 20.000 inhabiting the 12 bairros 
(villages) which radiate out from Barra Mansa. 
Boa Sorte, one of these bairros, is the home and 
place of work for Mary Alice Duddy and Alice 
Drefchinski, two American nurses. 

Since January 12, 1962 when the work was 
officially begun, much has happened. With the 
generous sponsorship of the parish and people of 
Barra ?'lansa, a one room dispensary was built 
into the small compact house and was blessed in 
May by Bishop Rossi. It is from this dispensary 
that we hear from the team: 

"Soon we 11 open the door to the ambulatory' 
and invite the waiting people to come into the 
tiny yard space, now filled with wonderful plants 
— all of them gifts of these patients. What care can 
we give for each one? There is always the busi- 
ness on hand — a can to be filled with powdered 
milk from the American Catholic Bishops' Relief 
Fund, a variety of symptoms to be explained, a re- 
dressing, a blood pressure or the result of an ex- 
amination. And when this is resolved, there begins 
— "and do you have a remedy for" — or, "my 
neighbor wants to know" — or, "last night my 
husband had a cris of ... To listen, suggest, 
explain, grant, refuse, recommend . . . We call it 
medical-social service and we'd like to call it com- 
munity development. Certainly it is human rela- 
tionship and encounter ... to maintain objectivity, 
renew perspective, plan for the future." 

What are the plans for the future: 
1. To secure the collaboration of the newly-elected 
mayor and council and heads of industry and 
commerce to help combat conditions leading to 
continuous intestinal parasite (based on the 
result of now more than 2,000 examinations). 
2. To work up in mimeograph form the lessons 
in nursing given by Alice and Neuza Ramos, 
a young Brasilian nurse of Sao Paulo and vol- 
untary member of the Grail-Pavla team. "We 
gave the course to the members of the Hospital 
Santa Casa of Barra Mansa — 70 bed hospital 
with one trained nurse. As a result, two or three 
of the twenty who took the course will begin 
to train as nurses this year. " 
' To continue to collaborate with the program of 
Public fiealth to romf)at contagious disease. 
vVe vaccinated more than one thousand 
against first infantile paralysis and later, 
against smallpox." 

4. To encourage the construction of a stage for 
trie production of plays and "shows ". 

5. To continue with the lessons in dressmaking, 
embroidery and manual arts. (Antonieta) Alice 
had a special lair-rit for making toys, decora- 
tions, inrlufiing props and scenery for the plays. 



6. To conduct courses in doctrine and methods of 
teaching religion to the catchists loyal but un- 
trained in Boa Sorte. 



Papaf Volunteers list Virginia Scharf Falls '3/,

Jack and Virginia Falls and their five daughters. 
Suzanne, Marianne, Alison, Cecilia and Eileen, 
have settled in Santiago, Chile in order to further 
the work of Techo. Techo is a housing, social 
and educational movement designed to help the 
poor in Chile, which is supported only by volun- 
tary contributions.

Rev. Gerard Murray 

Beloved Priest 
Noted Playwright 

and 
Esteemed Teacher 




Rev. Gerard Murray 



k 



The many friends, colleagues, and 
former students of Father Gerard M. 
Murray were grieved to learn of his 
death last Dec. II, at the Priory of 
the Benedictine Fathers. Nassau in 
the Bahamas. Father Murray died of 
a heart attack. 

Following a Solemn Requiem Mass 
at St. Vincent Ferrer's Church, Glen- 
wood Fioad and E. 37th St.. Brook- 
lyn, Father Murray was buried on 
Dec. 17 in Holy Cross Cemetery. He 
ii lurvived hy two sisters, Mrs. John 
(Helen) Neary and Mrs. Francis 
(Miriam) Mulligan. 

At St. Francis College, F'ather 
.Murray was loved and deeply re- 
spected as a teacher of Fnglish litera- 
ture ana creative writing. He fjrought 



to the classroom an extraordinary 
knowledge, a keen insight, and an 
excited dedication. Father Murray 
possessed the most cherished gift of 
the teacher, ihat is; he was able to 
communicate his fjoundless enthusi- 
asm for his subject. To participate in 
one of Father's writing classes was a 
rare and wonderful experience. Willi 
patience, skill, and charity, he en- 
couraged all — even the least of his 
disciples — to efforts which often ex- 
ceeded his own fondest expectations. 
Father Murray played a prominent 
role in the intellectual life of St. 
Joseph's College. Frefiuenlly at the 
expense of his limited physical re- 
sources, he gave over his evenings lo 
directing the dramatic group. At the 



theatre, he look as much delight in a 
superior performance as any athletic 
coach ever took in winning a game. 
A playwright himself, the author 
of "Career Angel " and "Charred 
Wood." he was a penetrating critic. 
Falher Murray was always generous 
with his time and talent. 

To those students who had ihe 
good fortune of having had Father 
Murray for a teacher, there is little 
more lo be said. Fl.veryone has his own 
recollerlions of the warmth, wit. and 
wisdom of llie lillle priest who brought 
his magic lantern into the classrooms 
of St. ,Iose|)h's College. 

"May Jesus (Christ, whom he tried 
so hard to serv<-, judge I'alher Mur- 
ray with love and gentle mercy.

Desk 



Dear Alumnae, 

A( the present moment the first phase of the Develop- 
ment Fund Drive has realized S628.165.I7. In surpassing 
the minimum goal set at $400,000 this campaign has sur- 
passed even- e.xpectation. This response is the concrete 
proof of the loyalty of our alumnae which not only encour- 
ages us in our plans for expansion, but will also act as an 
incentive to business and communit\' enterprises to aid us. 

In these times when the wealth and efficiency of secu- 
lar educational institutions challenge the ver,' existence of 
religiously oriented institutions, the sacrifices that you have 
shown yourselves willing to make for St. Joseph s College 
is the best indication of the quality of such an education 
as you have received. The excellence of a college is meas- 
ured by the excellence of her alumnae, and %ve here at the 
college realize that whatever prestige may be ours, it has 
been won for us by the outstanding achievements of our 
alumnae. 

Your individual responses have made this first appeal 
for funds, in our 47 year history, a gratifying event. 
Whether your ability to give was great or limited in regard 
to time. labor or money, your gracious generosity which 
has endeared you to all who participated in this campaign 
must certainly have won for you an abundance of graces 
from the Lord Who loves the Cheerful giver. 

Sincerely yours in Christ 
Sister Vincent Therese, C.S.J. 
President 



The Junior Oreat Books Program is an experiment in reading and discussion 
for elenientar\' and nigh school students. It is sponsored by The Great Books 
Foundation, a not-for-profit educational organization, which has offered a similar 
program for adults during the past fifteen years. The purpose of the new program 
is to introduce youngsters to some of the greatest writings of all time. Through read- 
ing and discussion of these books, which have proved to be inexhaustible sources 
of ideas, the youngsters achieve a better understanding of the world both inside and 
outside of themselves. The Foundation has found, in the groups already formed, 
that Great Books can be read with profit and pleasure by young people as well as 
by adults. 

Two sets of Junior Great Books are now available. The first set is intended 
for use in the fifth or sixth grade; the second set is designed for the seventh, eighth 
or ninth grade. Selections in the two sets have been pre-tested in more than 100 
Junior Great Books groups. Each of the sets contains four paperback volumes with 
readings for eight sessions. The boxed sets cost $3.23 apiece. This is the only charge 
in the program. The Leader Training Course, A Leader's Manual, and Leader Aids 
(these are examples of questions that may be asked about the work) are all pro- 
vided without charge by The Great Books Foundation. Since the sets are in limited 
supply, they will be available only to groups designated as part of this experimental 
program. After the Foundation has further opportunity to evaluate works in discus- 
sion, it plans to publish a set for each grade from the fifth through the twelfth. 

For information about how you Vnay start an experimental Junior Great Books 
Program, write The Great Books Foundation. 5 South Wabash Avenue, Chicago 
3, Illinois.

About Our Cover 

Surprised by joy Pat Nicholson '64 checks the details 
which can turn that European dream trip into a 
reality. From June 9 to June 30, students, faculty 
and alumnae will visit England, Holland, Germany, 
Austria, Italy and France. Leaving Kennedy Airport 
on the morning of June 9 this group will jet to 
England for a three day stay in London and an 
excursion to Stratford. Traveling once again by jet 
the party will then set its course for Amsterdam 
and the story book villages of Volendarm and 
Marken. In Germany, the next stop, a boat trip 
along the Rhine will revive the initial enthusiasm 
of the sightseers. At Innsbruck, faculty, alumnae 
and a few of the more mature undergraduates will 
vigorously shoulder the burden of physical fitness 
by their unshakable loyalty to spectator sport. With- 
out the slightest respite from its rigorous role of 
sightseer this party will proceed to heroically ful- 
fill its function on a nine-day trip through the Italian 
cities of Rome, Bologna, Assisi and Milan. The tour 
of the Italian cities will climax the trip which will 
gaily conclude with five full days in Paris. On the 
morning of June 30 the members of St. Joseph's 
first European Tour will arrive at Kennedy Airport. 
At an all inclusive cost of $645, a deposit of $100 
will reserve a place for you. Final payment is not 
due until 45 days before the trip.

On the Revision of the Curriculum: 

The purpose of the curriculum committee is to 
broaden the scope of the libera! arts tradition at

On Philosophy at the College: 

As the condition of philosophy today is pluralistic, 
the philosophy department seeks to promote an 
understanding of the multiple currents of thought 
present in contemporary culture. By fostering at the, 
same time an appreciation of the philosophia peren- 
nis the department hopes to achieve a synthesis 
between the old and the new. To achieve these ends 
the department has increased its faculty and noW' 
offers two new electives in Contemporarj' Existen- 
tialism and Contemporaiy Linguistic Analysis. In 
the near futui-e students will be able to declare a 
minor in philosophy in preparation for which the 
department is considering special author courses, 
courses in aesthetics, philosophical literature, the 
philosophy of religion, the philosophy of communism 
and other courses which will give the student a 
broad philosophical experience

Biolog>' as a major and as a minor, together with 
the large number of Freshmen electing Biology as 
their science requirement, made it advisable to divide 
the Science Department into two separate depart- 
ments: Biolog>' and Physical Science. As far back 
as 1951 however, the college graduated its first 
Biologj' Major. Prior to that time only courses neces- 
sary to satisfy a minor requirement were offered. 
Biologj' majors enter the field of secondary teach- 
ing, medicine and research. A Biology minor is most 
helpful to students majoring in Child Development, 
Chemistry, Mathematics and Psychology. 




ROBERT V. POIGNANT, M.S. 
Instructor in Chemiilry 

On the Undergraduates' Interest in Science: 

It is most gratifying to see that many of our most 
talented and most winsome students have favored 
our fine Physical Science Department as well as the 
Education Department with their presence. We are 
in need of scientifically orientated teachers, and I 
for one would like to see an increase in their 
numbers.

the field of the organomelallic reactions of epoxy kctmes. Working with a grant of $18,990 over a 
period of four years, eleven students have worked on the project and the results of the work up to 
this time have been discussed in papers presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society, the 
New York Chemistry Students Associotion and the Eastern College Science Conference. The purpose of 
the National Science Foundation Program is to initiate students in chemical research and to encourage 
them to do graduate work in the field. Of the eleven students who have worked on the project, seven 
ore graduates. Four of the seven ore in graduate schools, one is employed in the Research division of

Instead of the usual weekend Retreat 
the Alumnae Retreat this year will be a 
one day affair held on Saturday, March 
20 in the College Chapel. Reverend 
Charles Cushing, Newman Club Chaplain 
at Queens College will conduct the Re- 
treat. Reservations for the Retreat and 
for the Communion Breakfast which will 
be held at the Hotel St. George on Sun- 
day, March 21 may be obtained from 
Marj' Shea '56 or Sister Maiy Florence 
'47 who are the co-chairmen of this year's 
event. The Mass on Palm Sunday will be 
at 10 o'clock in the College Chapel. 

Sister Vincent Therese is happy to re- 
port that the pledges for Development 
Fund now exceed $800,000 while the cash 
receipts have passed the half million 
mark. 

Faculty are working on a curriculum 
revision which will provide 13 points in 
TTieology as part of the undergraduates 
required courses for the degree. 

Among the new members of the faculty 
is Rev. Robert Lauder, brother of Joan 
Lauder McKenna '50. Father Lauder and 
Father Thomas McFadden joined the 
Theology Department in September when 
Bishop McEntegart requested that Father 
Raymond Leonard be relieved of teaching 
in order to become a member of the ad- 
ministrative staff of the Vatican Pavilion 
at the New York World's Fair. 

Claire Bauch '56 and Joan Foley '55

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT 

It has been a source of joy to us to realize your loyalty to 
Monsignor Dillon. May I take this opportunity to thank you 
for your letters expressing your appreciation of Father Dil- 
lon's devotion to you and to St. Joseph's through the years. 

I wish I could acknowledge every letter personally, and I 
trust you will understand that my thoughts and prayers are 
with vou alwavs. 

Sister Vincent Therise 

FATHER DILLON 

When we tried to write captions for the photographs that 
accompany the eulogy of Father Dillon by Monsignor Down- 
ing on pages 4-9 of this Aliimnagrain we noticed we were 
using such verbs as "assists," "escorts," and "watches." These 
words just repeat the camera's truth, and we who partici- 
pated in the life of St. Joseph's with him knew that he was 
a "minister," his favorite word for the priestly calling. 
Though he would make himself the least, would humble him- 
self, we who knew the greatness of his heart and the magni- 
tude of his mind, felt or heard the lash of his terrible anger 
at dishonesty or dissimulation, experienced his courtesy and 
courtliness, laughed with him even, and, finally, were elevated 
and eidarged by his \ ision of Christ's Truth can only believe 
that he has been exalted at last, that now he lives forever. 

But the presence of more than 350 alumnae at his funeral 
attests more eloquently to the meaning of his life as it 
touched all of ours than any words. 

We have taken the long way round to tell you why only 
names and dates identify the photographs used. Those who 
knew him will not forget him. Those who did not may, in 
this issue, we hope, perceive what he in Christ might have 
meant to them. 

He was one of God's watchmen, knowing that "except the 
Lord keepeth the City, the watchman waketh in vain."

PRESIDENT RETURNS 

Sister \'inccnt Thercse announced the ap|)oiiunient of 
Mary Breiuian '64. president of the I'ndergraduate .Associa- 
tion for I9()3-I964. as a recruitment officer. .Mary will rep- 
resent St. Joseph's at "college days" and will visit those high 
schools retpiesting information for their students. During 
the summer, she was director of the New York State Pax ilion 
stalf of hostesses at the ^Vorld's Fair. 



NEW LIBRARY TO BE COMPLETED BY SPRING TERM 




The roof is sealed, the windows and doors are in place, and 
the plasterers, painters, and electricians are working to com- 
plete the new library and classroom building in time for the 
new term. Moving day is very close, and the whole College 
anticipates with joy the added facilities it will provide. The 
library will house our 52.000 volumes as well as periodicals 
and audiovisual materials in spacious stack areas designed to 
allow extensive expansion. The cafeteria, student and fac- 
ulty lounges, language laboratory, listening room, eight 
classrooms, typing room, and audiovisual room increase the 
possibility for enjoyment of both academic and extracur- 



ricular activities. .\ small Lady Chapel on the fourth floor 
will allow for moments of recollection and quiet prayer. 

On September 12, the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary, a 
copper strongbox containing historically significant memen- 
toes was sealed into the cornerstone and will be blessed at 
the dedication ceremony. Items included were the Charter 
of the College; the official catalog containing a list of the 
present administration and faculty; the prospectus and some 
postcard views of the College; a map of the College property 
and buildings; the account from The Tablet announcing 
the opening of the fund-raisin.g campaign; lists of donors to 
the Development Fund Campaign, the campaign workers, 
and the present undergraduate body; the pictures and ac- 
count from T/(f Tablet of the gioundbreaking ceremony, 
including Bishop McEntagert's remarks on that occasion; 
a history of the library and such library data as the number 
of volumes, circulation statistics, and accession rate; and 
photographs of tlie former heads of the College, Bishop 
Charles McDonnell, .\rchljishop Thomas E. Molloy, and 
Monsignor AVilliam T. Dillon. The box also contains items 
significant on the broader level of the Church, the city, 
and the Nation; BishoiJ McEntagert's coat of arms (which will 
appear above the main doors of the library along with those 
of the Congre.gation of the Sisters of Saint Joseph and the 
C^olle.ge); a portrait medal of Pope Paul V'l and a copy of his 
first encyclical; the names of diocesan officials; the front page 
of the September 12 Tablet; appropriate religious articles; 
names of federal, state, and city officials; and a John F. 
Kennedy half dollar, a cjuarter, a dime, a nickel, and a ])enny. 

Also included in the collection is a college ring, that of 
the late Mary Joan Lauder McKenna '50. Mary Joan, who 
died suddenly last June, was a loyal alumna, president of the 
Bay Ridge Group, and mother of Mary Ann, a preschool 
alumna.

IN MEMORIAM: 

RIGHT REVEREND MONSIGNOR WILLIAM T. DILLON, J.D. LL.D, 

1892-1964 

PRESIDENT, ST. JOSEPH'S COLLEGE FOR WOMEN, 1945-1955 
PROFESSOR OF PHILOSOPHY, 1920-1955; DEAN, 1927-1945; 
MEMBER, BOARD OF TRUSTEES, 1927-1964 
PASTOR, ST. TERESA OF AVILA CHURCH, 1955-1964 



"Here was a great priest, whose life was acceptable to God 
and proved ever faithful to Him . . . Where shall we find 
another to keep the law of the Most High as he kept it?" 
(Ecclesiasticus Chapters 44 and 45 as used in the Epistle 
and Gradual of the Mass of a Confessor Bishop) . 

Forty-seven years ago last June 2d tliere stood in the 
sanctuary of the Church of St. John the Baptist sixteen dea- 
cons, candidates for ordination to Christ's priesthood. Over 
these sixteen men the ordaining bishop prayed: "O God, 
.Author of all holiness . . . pour down upon these Thy serv- 
ants whom we dedicate to the dignity of the priesthood the 
favor of T hy blessing so that by the gravity of their conduct 
and the strictness of their lives, they may prove themselves 
priests instructed by those teachings which Paul set forth to 
I'itus and Timothy: that meditating on Thy law, day and 
night, they may believe what they read, teach what they 
believe, and practice what they teach." 

/ came to St. Joseph's U'ith a theory and an ideal. Aly theory 
was that Catholic education in its highest level was not doing 
its best. .My ideal was and is that there is no power o?i earth 
or beneath that can keep us from the pinnacle . . . I saw two 
things that St. Joseph's could do, even on its humble plateau: 
first, set and keep standards both for students and faculty 
and, secondly, make democracy real again for students and 
faculty. 

The students should live under a constitution or charter 
which would be as definite as both parlies to the contract 
(faculty and student) can make it. It would include every- 
thing but matters academic. 

We ha%e gathered here this morning to offer the Funeral 
.Mass for one of these men in whom that solemn prayer of 
Ordination IJay has born remarkable fruit. 

.St. Paul would have 1 imothy and Titus aware that "there 
were perilous times coming |when| men will be in love with 
self, in love with money, boastful, proud, abusive . . . stran- 
gers to pity and to kindness . . . thinking rather of their pleas- 
ures than of (iod. I hey will preserve all the outward form 
of religion, althougli they have long been strangers to its 
meaning" (2 I imothy 3:2-5) . He warned them, too, that 
"the lime will surely tome wlien men will grow tiretl of 
tourid doctrine, always itching to hear something fresh" 
(2 Timothy •1:.'}). 

"Two things daim thy attention," wrote Paul to Timothy, 
"lliyself and the leafhing ol the failli; spend thy tare on 
lliem: v> will ihou and thos<- who listen to thee athieve 

Kalion " (I limotliy 4:10). 

And lo Titus: "Fjuourage the young to live orderly lives. 
I.<l ihem (nid in all thou dost the model of a life nol<ly lived; 
let ihcm hnd ilicc disiijlerested in thy teadiiiig. worthy ol 
ilieir respect, thy dot trine sound beyond all cavil; . . . (I itus 

'.8). 



"Urge men to action, using a reprimand where necessary 
with all the authority of God's minister — and as such let no 
one treat you with contempt" (Titus 2:15) . 

"The spirit God has bestowed on us is not one that shrinks 
from danger; it is a spirit of action, of love and of discipline" 
(2 Timothy 1, 7). 

Read these Epistles to Timothy and Titus. Note St. Paul's 
direction that these his disciples cultivate a long list of vir- 
tues, a formidable list of virtues: charity from a pure heart 
and a good conscience and faith unfeigned, blamelessness, 
reserve, prudence, hospitality, gentleness in correction of 
those obstinate in error, diligence in reading, exhortation 
and teaching: courtesy to the world around them, utilization 
of grace, detachment from the goods of this world, the pur- 
suit of justice, mildness, championship of the faith, humility, 
continence, integrity, dignity, souncl discourse, esteem for 
all that God has made, endurance, kind forbearance, the 
reposing of one's hopes in the living God. courage that will 
not shrink from danger, proper self-esteem. 

A big order surely. Note that it is a weaving together, a 
synthesis, an integration of both natural and supernatural 
virtues. 

1 submit that those who have been privileged to know 
Monsignor Dillon have seen in his life evidence of all these 
virtues and his awareness of the twentieth century's "perilous 
times." Those who have known Monsignor Dillon well can- 
not but agree that the ordaining prelate's prayer over him 
some 47 years ago has been answered marvelously — miracu- 
lously. Here was a great priest. His life was a happy synthesis 
of natural and supernatural virtues. 

We priests have been taught that to be a great priest one 
must be a great Catholic; to be a great Catholic, one must 
be a great Christian: to be a great Cliristian, one must be a 
great man. 

/ sympathize with Pilate, icho was afraid of the answer to 
his query, "What is truth?" and walked away, even while I 
resent him for it. I understand a message to John — "Go, tell 
him what you have .wen and heard. The blind see — the deaf 
hear — the lame loalk — and the poor have (iospel preached 
to Ihem." 

This is the ultimate in everything — life — lox'e — philoso- 
phy — where light and shadow meet — fact and theory — and 
Cod sits down with man. Here all the searching years are 
ended and ncliing souls asMuiged and youth is glad and age 
takes hope. 

The .supernatural builds on nature — grace perfects nature. 
The la(k of natural virtues, the lack of CJiristian virtues, the 
la(k of speiificdiy C:itholi( virtues nnist inevit.ibly mar any 
priesthood. I here are great values in a Kipling's "If." There 
.ire values ii] a Henley's "Iiivittus." These we must h;ive, 
but these must, if I may use the expression, lie b.ipti/cd. The

"majTnificcnt pagan" is still pagan. As such he is sadly lacking 
ill the fullness of human tkvelopnicnt that God calls for. 
The proper appreciation of the importance of the natural 
and the supernatural colored the whole life and teaching 
of Monsignor Dillon. He worked so hard to have all under 
his care cultivate both. EX(;EI.LENC;E he would have as 
their aim. hut both supernatinal and natural excellence. 

He was catholic as well as Catholic. He himself heeded 
and he urged others to heed the words of St. Paul: "Brethren, 
all that rings true, all that commands reverence, and all that 
makes for right: all that is pure, all that is lovely, all that is 
gracious in the telling: virtue and merit, wherever virtue 
and merit are found — let this be the argument of your 
thoughts" (Phillippcans 1:8). 

He insisted on scholarship, and yet he insisted, too, "St. 
Joseph's will be judged not primarily by the kind of scholars 
we make you but by the kind of women we produce . . . .The 
value of a Catholic life is the ratio of Christ in it." Address- 
ing the graduating class of a Catholic men's college, he 
said, "\\'hat is Christ, what does He mean in your life? The 
test of the value of your degree is only this — What is Christ 
to you? . . . This is a cold appraisal of vour Catholic training 
and your collegiate studies." 

A long career of teaching youth has left me with the im- 
mutable conviction that it is fundamentally honest, indis- 
putably ideal, and transcendentally generous. I have more 
faith this hour than I did a generation ago. and I have no 
doubt that, if I shall see another pass. I shall be yet more 
trusting than I am today. It has cost me much to keep that 
faith, but it has been worth it all. 



Monsignor Dillon was born July I, 1892, of John and 
Katherine Dillon, the second of six children — three boys 
and three girls. He was bapti7ed in the Church of St. John 
the Baptist. .\11 his life he cherished the memory of the fac- 
ulty of P.S. Iflfi from which he was gniduatcd. He attended 
St. John's Prep and College, graduating from the latter in 
1913. 

While a student at St. John's College, he spent his sum- 
mers as director of a public school playground in the lower 
East Side. What are now called culturally deprived or under- 
privileged people were always an object of special affection 
for him. Not for him was the odi profanum vulgus et arceo. 



Like his Master, all his life he had "compassion on the 
multitude" (Matthew 9:36) — sympathy and empathy. \\'hile 
highly appreciative of the glories of nature, for his walks 
he preferred poor neighborhoods to the beauty of Prospect 
Park or the tree-lined streets of prosperous residential areas. 

At St. John's he won gold medals for extraordinary achieve- 
ments in all sorts of subjects. His immediate preparation for 
the priestliood was made at the then diocesan seminary, St. 
John's. God had endowed Monsignor Dillon with a fine mind 
but it was by God's grace and by his hard work that these 
"ten" talents were developed — by blood and sweat and tears. 

He was ordained on June 2, 1917, by the German-born 
Capudiin Bishop AVallescr, who was exiled during World 
War 1 Irom his missionarv diocese of the .Mariana and Caro- 
line Islands. .Most newly ordained priests offer their first 
Solemn Afass in their home parish, .\fonsigiior Dillon's first 
iAfass was not offered at St. "Thomas the .Apostle Church, as 
we might have expected, but in the chapel of the Nursing 
Sistei-s of the Sick Poor on Henry Street. 

His first priestly assignment was as a curate in the parish 
of St. Francis of Assist in Flatbush. .A totally dedicated priest, 
he won the hearts of all. I need not detail the activities that 
won him such esteein. But he had learned well from the 
patron saint of this his first parish. "Blessed is the servant 
who thinks himself no better when he is magnified and ex- 
alted by men. than when he is held to be mean, simple and 
of no account. For .\S A MAN IS BEFORE GOD, TH.\T 
IS HE, AND NO MORE" (St. Francis of Assisi) . 

Priests yearn to do great things for Christ. Inspired by 
God's goodness to men and by the accomplishments of their 
predecessors in the ]>riesthood, at home and on foreign mis- 
sions, candidates for the priesthood "dream dreams and see 
visions." The spect;icidar not infrequently colors these vi- 
sions of the challenges Divine Providence may send them. 
Spectacular priestly challenges were not just dreams and 
visions — they were hard facts in the life of Monsignor i 
Dillon. 

In 1 91 8 two spectacular challenges came to the new curat 
at St. Francis of Assisi. I refer to the Malbone Street Tunnel 
subway wreck on the Brighton Line in which 97 were killed 
and 100 were hurt, and the Spanish influenza epidemic in 
which 548,000 died in the I'nited States and the .American 
.Armed Forces. Malbone Street, now known as Empire Boule- 
vard, was the border line of St. Francis Parish. .Along withi 
priests from all the parishes in the vicinity he was called tol

administer the last rites to the victims of this horrible dis- 
aster — a genuine baptism of fire for so young a curate. 

In St. Francis Parish there existed, too the Kingston Ave- 
nue Hospital for Contagious Diseases. .Abandoned now but 
in those days popularly known as the "pesthouse," it was a 
very busy place filled with victims of contagious disease, 
from the dreaded diphtheria to advanced cases of social dis- 
eases undergoing legally enforced treatment. Every day found 
Father Dillon in the "pesthouse." The outbreak, of the flu 
overtaxed the resources of this same hospital. Doctors, nurses, 
and priest alike were challenged and challenged spectacu- 
larly. Two of the priests attending the hospital contracted 
the flu. Father Dillon and Father Killeen. The professional 
staff of the hospital,' though overworked, in brief periods 
of their little free time went to the rectory to help save the 
lives of their priest coworkers. God blessed their efforts. 

/ have no vision of the future. Storms are gathering in the 
night shy. Clouds are bending ever lower and forces of dele- 
tion are here at work against our country, against our Christ. 
If so He wills that we must here once more be victimized, 
even so. His will be done. I want to think that this will not 
have come until we of the colleges, the Catholic colleges, have 
done our part. I should like to think that even this may be a 
part, an infinitesimal part. If time should prove us right, 
I shall not be interested, so that it proves us honest. The test 
of virtue is not always achievement and, if it proves us lurong, 
well, what of llial' IIV harr labored for Christ and for His 
Brother. 



In later life twrj more spectacular and dramatic challenges 
came. In 1927 a group of laymen who summered at Saltairc, 
Fire Island, built a duirdi and priest's house and then asked 
Bishop .\lolloy to appoint a j>aslor. The bishop assigned 
Monsignor Dillon. 'I he parishioners turned over to him the 
new buildings, with their debt. The summer parish of Our 
Lady Star of the -Sea was born. The frame buildings were 
construe led on piles driven into cranberry bogs cnridied 
with poison ivy. .A boardwalk surrounded the parish build- 
ings. For eighl years this summer jiaiisli adoidcd Monsignor 
Dillon ilie o|)porlutiily ol a Ijusy |)aijsli lile lor the young- 

Particularly I). Regan, .Mary Heriiieixrry, and .Mrs. Killoran. 



sters and adidts inider his care. His summers were not periods 
of inactivity. They were readily giasped opportunities to 
bring more people to Christ. Several hours each day were 
set aside for filling in the bogs in the immediate vicinity of 
the chinch. When tliis was completed, he arranged to have 
topsoil brought from the main land. .A lawn was planted 
around his buildings. The church and its .site were at long 
last a thing of Ijeauty, worthy of Our Lady. Then came the 
destructive hurricane of 1938, and in twenty minutes the 
church with its furnishings and the landscaping, which rep- 
resented so much pliysical labor on his part, were washed 
out to sea. The church was but a memory, but the work 
for souls accomplished there was written indelibly in the 
Book of Life. 

Gathered liere this morning we witness some of the evi- 
dences of the last of these spectacidar tests: the fire which 
vandals set this summer, ruining so much of the beauty of 
this church which its now deceased pastor had decorated and 
remodeled so recently, at such great expense, for even more 
worthy worship of God by the people he loved so dearly. 
Monsignor Dillon could iniderstand St. Teresa's observation, 
"God writes straight with crooked lines" and her other ob- 
servation, "Lord, no wonder You have so few friends when 
you treat them as You do." But Teresa was a great friend of 
God. So was Monsignor Dillon. 

In a sermon he intended to preach this fall, he wrote: 
"Life devoid of pain is not e\en half a life but a delusion 
and a snare. Only a saint or a fool begs for suffering. Only 
an idiot believes he can live or learn without it. Christ's 
life could have been a just jeremiad in every hour . . ." 
But "He li\ed joyfully, died gallantly ... no evidence of 
resentment in his heart." Here we have the explanation of 
liis ability to "take it" again and again and yet again. 

IIV arc dedicated to the ideal that the four years of college 
lire four years of lixnui^. probably the most momentous of your 
life. And there you have the future of this college, at least 
in ideal. 



In 1920 when Bishop-elect Molloy had to relinquish his 
chair of Professor of Philo.sopliy at the then very young St. 
Joseph's College. Bishop McDonnell appointed Father Dil- 
lon to succeed him as curate in Queen of All Saints Parish 
and philosophy teacher at St. Joseph's. This marked the 
beginning of extraortlinary service to the cause of Catholic 
(•(huation which lasted for 35 years. He Ijccame Dean of 
Si, losiph's in 1927 and was President from 191.') to 19.55. 

A tribute given liim in 1955 bespeaks his pupils' appre- 
ciation of him: "We, St. Joseph's College .Alumnae, hail you, 
Father Dillon, on your wise, courageous leadership in Catho- 
lic ediKatioii and .American ideals, challenging teaching 
with Mil)Iiinc' luith in young womanhood, sellless friendship 
ihmiigli our depths, our heights and our ordinary days, 
priestliness coinl)iniiig deep spirituality with sensibility to 
mundane allairs. With us you have shared tlie 'grandeur of 
living' for 35 years. For you, in grateful appreciation, wc 
imploie a full return of life's beauty and harmony, and an 
inlniitc wealth of (Jod's love." 

Consider the distinctive, lar-sighled and. .it the lime, Irail- 
bla/ing, even iniicpie at (oinplishments caily in his teinire; 
e.g.. liis establishing tlie first C.itholic college nursery .school 
.111(1 kindergarten, inlcgrated in a deparltnenl of early child- 
iiood education (giving, himsell, daily leligious instruction 
lo tlic youngsters) , his esl.iblisiiinenl ol sludcnl governincnl 



antl of the honor system, his winning accrctlitation from the 
higliest accrfcliting agencies, his Missal Club, his Mercier 
Circle, his remarkahle program of daily Mass and oilier 
religious exeriises. and. willi |>ermission. tlie use of a form 
of the Dialogue .Mass. his patriotism, his insistence on a 
course in United Stales Government as a prere(|uisite for 
graduation, the esl.iMishmcnt of the Jeanne \'alois Guild 
for the ll.indicappc'il — all of this <|uilc apart from his stiiuu- 
l.iting classroom te.iching. Small wonder that the ahnnnae 
paid tribute to his wise and courageous leadership, his selfless 
friendship, his challenging teaching and his pricstliness, his 
"intangible inspiration," "deep kindliness," his "zest for 
righteous causes." While at St. Joseph's, loo, he founded two 
national Catholic honor societies for college students: Delta 
Epsilon Sigma for both men and women and Kappa Gamma 
I'i, foi women .done. 



Sludoit Govtrmiunl n in a small iray an cxf)msion of a 
big truth — that the democratic way of life works when no 
one takes always and everyone giz'es sometimes. 



Cofounder of the Catholic Lawyers' Guild of the Diocese 
of Brooklyn, he gave himself generously to the service of 
these men and women whom he admired. The presence of 
so many members of the Guild here this morning speaks more 
elocjueiuly than I can of their admiration and affection for 
one who ever mged them on to be loyal to the soiuidest 
ethical principles in their God-given vocation. What he said 
to the students of St. Joseph's, he said to them: "The value 
of a Catholic life is the ratio of Christ in it." To them God 
had given much. From them he confidently expected much. 
.\Iemi)er of ihe Bar himself, and Doctor of Jurisprudence 
from St. Lawrence University, he had a particular htncss for 
for being their moderator. 

For the past nine years ^fonsignor Dillon liad labored 
among, and profoundly inspired, the parishioners and priests 
of this famous parish of St. Teresa. His accomplishments 
here speak for themselves. All through his priesthood he had 
been engaged in parochial ministry: as curate in the parishes 
of St. Francis of .\ssisi inidcr .Monsignor Ludekc and Queen 
of .-Ml Saints under Nfonsignors Coan and Flannery success- 
ively, as pastor for four or five months each year on Fire 
Island in the parish of Star of the Sea. and, after the 1938 
Innricanc had wrought its destruction, in the parish of Our 
Lady of the Magnificat at Ocean Beach. 

In 1955 Bishoj) .Molloy appointed him pastor of St. Teresa's. 
Although he continued his association with St. Joseph's Col- 
lege as a member of its Board of Trustees, his major respon- 
sibility for the rest of his life was to be that of pastoral care 
for the souls committed to him. Now came the challenge of 
full responsiliility for a huge, rapidly changing parish that 
had been founded in 1874 by Monsignor McXamee and 
opened its first school in 1883. Genuinely convinced that 
"the spirit God has bestowed on us is not one that shrinks 
from danger — one of fear, but a spirit of action, of love 
and discipline" (2 Timothy 1:7). he threw himself heart and 
soul into this new responsibility. He rehabilitated the phys- 
ical plant. Even more import:uuly. as all who knew him 
well expected, he devoted his unusually rich intellectual and 
supernatural gifts to furthering the spiritual development 
of his newly assigned flock. He would continue to urge all 
to excellence both natural and supernatural. He would con- 
tinue to insist that "The value of a Catholic life is the ratio 



of Christ in it." Consider an excerpt from a recent Sunday 
sermon of his: "I am ple:iding for a consciousness of the 
ties that bind all men everywhere. You have seen what a 
solitary man, by name Roncalli, could do. This, it is true, 
was partly because of his ofTicc (John XXIll), but there 
had been other Popes and yet not one had his impact and 
this becairsc as a little man, even as you and I, his heart was 
great, his soul was magnanimous. In six short years he did 
what six centuries had been luiable to do because he had li\ed 
in the misery of Belgrade and had suffered the degradation ol 
France and his life was attuned to human suffering ... I 
have not asked that you become e\:iiigelists to charity but 
only that in your secret soul you would try to know the lone- 
liness, the bitterness, the untold want of men and women 
just like you. I shall not even beg a prayer but will be con- 
tent if in some chance hour you will reflect and, reflecting, 
turn your eyes and heart of love towards the children of oui 
common Father Who gave us Life because of Love." He was 
so anxious that all his parishioners "have compassion on the 
multitude" (.Matt. 15:32), thereby increasing the "ratio of 
Christ in their lives." 

His standards for spiritual development were high. .So are 
Christ's: "you are to be perfect as your heavenly Father is 
perfect" (.Matt. 5:-18), echoed by Paul's "what God asks of 
you is that you should sanctify yourselves" (1 Thess. 4:3) 
(as read on the Second Sunday in Lent) . Bui because he 
realized that Christ's powers given him on that ordination 
clay 47 years ago were meant to be used in leading and help- 
ing sinners attain this sanctification, he was devoted to the 
administration of the sacraments through which this per- 
fection, this sanctification are to be achieved. .As one who 
for 47 years has been privileged to have had .Monsignor Dil- 
lon as his confessor and s|)irilu:d director, I happily bear 
witness to his expertness, his Christlikeness in his ministry 
of the sacraments, whatever the limitations of my coopera- 
tion with his efforts. Herein, too, instructed by the teachings 
which Paul set forth to Titus and Timothy, Monsignor 
Dillon meditated "on God's law, day and night, he believed 
what he read, he taught what he believed and practiced what 
he taught (Ordination prayer sul>ra) . 

Both .Archbishop Molloy and our present beloved Bishop 
.\fcEntcgart have called upon Monsignor Dillon for a great 
deal of extraparochial service to our Diocese. We think of 
his professionally expert service in the Diocesan Curia, his 
service as pro-synodal examiner of the Clergy, his ser\ice 
as assistant clean of Western Kings County. In these roles, 
as in others, he served gladly and competently. In his case, 
at least, we see the truth of the adage: "If you want some- 
thing done well, go to a busy man." 

Finally, skipping over his service to such national organi- 
zations as the .American C^atholic Philosophical .Association 
(of which he was the founder and president in 1937) , and 
the National Catholic Educational .Association, to mention 
but two. we come to an altogether extraordinary manifes- 
tation of community-mindedness. We think of his service 
with the Brooklyn Institute of .Arts and Sciences, the Brook- 
lyn Chapter of the .-Vmericiin Red Cross, the Brooklyn Tuber- 
culosis .Association, the Brooklyn Public Library .Association, 
the Police .Athletic League. Nor must we forget that long 
before all the publicity given the civil rights movement, 
because he was a great man, a great Christian, a great 
Catholic, and a great priest, he believed, he taught, and he 
practiced not "tolerance" but Christ's law of Charity and 
did his utmost to guarantee that those under his charge 
would .see they were not only bound by but inspired by

that same law, and the law of our beloved land. Community- 
minded? Yes. He was genuinely delighted to be able to ser\ e 
his parishioners, his community, his country, his Church and, 
in all of these, his God. 

In a life of such varied activity in areas often complex, 
debatable and, at times, experimental — in dealing democrat- 
ically with such a variety of personalities — it was inevitable 
that differences of opinion, misunderstandings, resistance, 
and opposition were encountered by Monsignor Dillon. 
These he expected. He sought their groiuids. Objectively as 
possible he evaluated their reasons. If and when he who 
claimed no infallibility was finally convinced that his course 
of action was the right one, he proceeded with his plans. He 
knew, as most of us sooner or later come to realize: 

"You have no enemies, you say? 
Alas my friend the boast is poor — 
He who has mingled in the fray 
Of duty, that the brave endure, 
Must have made foes! If you have none, 
Small is the work that you have done; . . . 
You've never turned the wrong to right — 
You've been a coward in the fight." 

— Mackay 

He never lost sight of the warning of the Master: "I have 
come to bring a sword, not peace ... a man's enemies will 
be those of Iiis own house" (Matthew 10:34-36). But "the 
spirit God has bestowed on us is not one that shrinks from 
danger; it is a spirit of action, of love and of discipline" 
(2 Timothy 1:7). 

Indeed, "here was a great priest whose life was acceptable 
to God and proved faithful to Him. Where shall we find 
another to keep the law of the Most High as he kept it?" 

Las( Saturday I stood at Monsignor's bedside — his death- 
l)e(l. though I did not know it then. 

I asked, "How are you feeling?" He replied, "Tired, very 
tired." I continued, "Can I help you in any way?" He an- 
swered, "Pray for me — but I know you will." 

"Tired, very tired." Never before had I heard him admit 
or give any evidence of fatigue. Just two weeks previously, 
he had assisted at and spoke briefly at the annual Red Mass 
of his Lawyers' Guild. He ne\er seemed more vigoious. more 
joyous. But now at long last his overtaxed heart was failing. 
In forty-eight hours it would stop beating. "Tired, yes, very 
tired." But Christ, his Master, lias sanctified fatigue (John 
1:9). Like Clirist he was exhausted IN doing good but not 
tired OF doing good. IN doing good, he, like Clirist, was 
tireless. 

I .isk you today: ]jiay lor him. But I add, as he did, "1 
know you will." 

The Lord has given us a great priest. 

The Lord has taken him away. "Al il has pleased llie Lord, 
so is it done. 

Blessed be the iiaiiic ol ihe Loid" (Job I :'_'!). 

Ll(rii:d rest grant to liiiii. <) Lord, and Icl peipclual liglil 
shine on him. Amen. 

May his soul and llie souls ol all the failhlnl departed, 
through the nieny ol God, rest in peace. Amen. 

May Jesus Christ appear to him with a mild and (liceiful 
( oniil(nan(C and give him a plate among lliose who are to 
Ijc ill Mis preseiKc forever. Amen.

Important for all alumnae 

THE NEW CONSTITUTION IS YOUR BUSINESS 



Aggiornamenlo was Pope John's happy word for a new 
bcKinninf;. Your Executive Board, too, would open a window 
to sec a new day. 

\Vhiic considering the desirability of some changes in its 
activities, ihe Board reali/iil that, bctaiise of numerous 
amendments over the years, the Constitution was difhcult to 
read and had even become unwielily. .At the Class .Agents 
Workshop held at the College in May, a Constitution Com- 
mittee was appointed and it was directed to draft a new 
Constitution. The draft Constitution and revised Bylaws 
that resulted are presented below. 

The committee wishes to call your attention particularly 
to three fundamental changes in policy: 

VOTING BY MAIL 

.Article V of the Constitution provides for its alteration, 
revision, or amendment (and .Article I. Section 4, of the 
Bylaws provides for election of officers) by mailed ballot. 

.Alumnae .Association membership has increased, but rela- 
tively fewer alinnnae ha\e been able lately to attend the 
general meetings and thus been eligible to vote. At the gen- 
eral meeting on October .5 the alumnae present moved that 
the existing Constitution be amended so that, in the future, 
amendments woidd take effect on the a|)proval of two thirds 
of the members voting on a ballot mailed to all alinnnae. 
If the amendment is passed, each one of you will be eligible 
lo vole on the new Constitution. This proposed anienchneni 
is being promulgated here, as required by the present Con- 
stitution, and will be ratified or rejected at the January 
meeting. 

MEMBERSHIP EXTENDED 

-Article 111 provides that membership in the .Alumnae As- 
sociation be extended to include anyone who has been a 
student at St. Joseph's. 

Whereas alumnae associations throughout the country 
accept as members any former students who wish to belong 
to them, membership under our present Constitution is 
limited to graduates and. under .Amendment IV to Article 
III, to students who have spent at least one vear at St. 
Joseph's, have left in good standing, and have not received 
a degree from another institution. .Amendment IV excludes 
students forced to leave for financial, academic, or other 
reasons but who. nevertheless, hold St. Joseph's in high re- 
gard, attend its affairs, and support its programs. (The article 
by Grace Byrne Hill on pages 12-13 provides documentation 
supporting .Article III.) 



ANNUAL GIVING INSTEAD OF 
DUES PAYMENT 

■Article V of the Bylaws concerns the hnancial structure 
of the Alumnae .Association. 

The flexibility in the statement will allow the Executive 
Board to organize and implement a program of annual 
giving, eliminating the outmoded practice of annual dues 
payment. The .Alunuiae .Association is not a club or ordinary 
organization: it is an integral part of the College itself, 
sharing the responsibility of fostering St. Joseph's continuing 
growth, among other responsibilities — and privileges. 

For, on the one hand, the worth of the alumna's degree 
is based in |>art on the cjuality of the College as it is known 
to nonalumnae. The |)ride of each alumna in St. Joseph's 
is substantiated when she notes such progress as its expand- 
ing curriculums, its enlarging faculty, its physical improve- 
ments, and the evergrowing percentage of its laureates going 
on to graduate study, frequently supportetl by competitively 
awarded grants. 

On the other hand, the C^ollege depends on its alumnae 
in many ways. Their individual status in the community 
brings to the College a respect and prestige that can be 
achieved in no other way: they are invaluable. But in the 
I960's cpiality costs money and the College must depend on 
ihe aluiiHiac for financial support also. Indeed, in the an- 
nuallv ]>ublislied record of the .American .Alumni Council, 
each alumnae association takes its rank among .American 
women's colleges on the basis of its monetary su[)port to its 
college for that fiscal year. For St. Joseph's, the first figures 
comparable to those of the other colleges listed appeared 
during the Development Fund Campaign. St. Joseph's can 
list no annual alumnae giving. Therefore, according to the 
Council, St. Joseph's .Alumnae .Association does not seem to 
fulfill its financial responsibility to the College. Finally, these 
listings significantly influence those corporations and foun- 
dations that scale their contributions to colleges on the 
basis of ahnnnae support. 

Your interest in St. Joseph's has been proved over the 
years — most strikingly during the Development Fund Cam- 
paign in the contributions gi\en or pledged and in the 
tireless elforts of all who worked to make the campaign a 
success. The C^onstitution C^ommittee and the Executive 
Board are confident that you will recognize the potentialities 
for alumnae growth in the proposed changes. Because they 
believe the proposed amendment will be ratified at the 
January meeting, they urge you now to vote "yes" on the 
new Constitution.

Alumna or Graduate? 

GRACE M. HILL 



As for Petrarch all history was "a praise of Rome," so for 
centuries all culture was enshrouded in its language. Cer- 
tainly everything ahout a university or college was dignified 
with a Latin name, and the ghosts of those centuries work 
effectively in the minds of men today. The word "alumnus" 
is a case in point. 

".Minimus" comes from the Indo-European root nl. which 
meant to grow or nuture. The derivations of this root, iilo 
in Latin, alnn in Gothic, ala in Icelandic, and the noun form 
nllram in Old Irish all share the same root meaning. It is 
with the Latin verb nto that we are here concerned. 

In Lewis and .Short's Latin Dictionary, while the Latin 
verb aid means to feed, nourish, support, or sustain, its use 
in general docs not include the nature of such sustenance. 
S'ulrirc denotes sustenance by animal foods. Figuratively, 
say the authors, the verb aid means cherish, promote, in- 
crease, or strengthen. From this verb come the "alma" of 
.Mma Mater (fostering mother) and alumnus, while from 
the original Indo-European root al we have, among other 
English words, aliment, alimentary, and alimony! 

In Indo-European languages, verbs whose stems ended in 
o or (• were known as thematic verbs, the o and r as thematic 
vowels. The importance of this classification lies in the dis- 
tinct way of forming different moods. .Additionally Indo- 
European distinguished two verb voices, the "active," in 
which the verbal action was directed outwardly, and the 



"niidcllc, ' wliLicin llic action was contei\ed as operating in 
or on the subject. Aid, the thematic verb, underwent various 
changes, arriving at its proper noini meaning through the 
addition of suffixes, vowel gradation, or ablaut, inherited 
from the parent language, as morphological de\i<es to indi- 
cate its svntadical function. The participial suffix "men" 
added to the stem brought forth a noun form which indicated 
that the action was operating upon the subject. In some 
Latin dictionaries alumnus is called a contraction of alo- 
mrnos and in others alominos, but L. R. Palmer in Thr 
Latin Language says: ". . . there would a])pear to be little 
doubt that the min is identical with the widcs|>read suffix 
men which forms verbal nouns and adjecti\cs." In the word 
alumnus a lluniatic form distinguished this middle panic iple. 
Min was rc|)laced by nuno. a rare participial suffix of which 
only a few traces survive today. To further alter the meaning 
of the suffix and to give it a new futiclion. the changing of 
the vowel or vowel gradation was the |)liilological device 
(as in the English ride, rode), but in the case of mcno in 
tilomcno. the vowel was reduced or drop|)ccl and the suffix 
became mntt to gi\e ceil.iin impersonal. niedio|)assive (unc- 
tions to the word. The final "s" was an additional suffix of 
masculine deverbatives. Alnntnas was the early Latin noun 
for one cherished or nourished, sustained or strengthened. 
One further change remains. Throughout a period of 
time the short \owels in noninitial svllables underwent a 



12 



process of raising for the sake of sound. If the syllable ended 
in a consonant, it was called a closed syllable and the change 
meant a substitution of "u" for "o." So alomnos became 
alumnus through the inherited processes of morphology and 
phonology. 

You may wonder why reference has been made so often 
to the Indo-European language. But just remember that the 
language of early Rome was a language brought into Italy 
by an Indo-European people who, after many wanderings, 
finally settled in Latium. There the language progressed 
under the tutorship of Etruria and of Greece, among others, 
and Latin is tlierefore the language product of the experi- 
ences of people historically connected in their new Mediter- 
ranean environment. 

The first use we find of the word alumnus is in the classical 
poets of the first century B.C. In that use the word meant 
foster-child, nursling, pupil, disciple, and even inhabitants 
of a country; in brief, to explain the love, bond, attachment. 
or loyally of one in relationship to another. Cicero spoke ol 
alumnus fortunae, Plalonis alumnus, and Veritas, Atticac 
philosophiae alumna (Truth, the foster-child of ,\ttic phil- 
osophy). This same meaning of the word alumnus (foster- 
child, pupil, or disciple: that is, one with restrictive privi- 
leges) was used by Ovid, Virgil, Horace, and Pliny in the 
literature of the period. In later Latin and today the meaning 
of the term, according to Webster's Unabridged Xeiv Inter- 
national Dictionary, is (a) a pupil, (6) a graduate of a school 
or college, and (c) a person formerly a member of a school 
or college class that has been graduated: the Oxford Diction- 
ary defines it as a foster-child and the nursling or pupil of 
any school, university, or other seat of learning; The World 
Book Encyclopedia Dictionary calls an alumnus a graduate 
or former student; Lewis and .Short's Latin Dictionary says 
it is that which is nourished, brought up; A Dictionary of 
Americanisms calls an alumnus one who has been in attend- 
ance at or been graduated by a particular university, college, 
or high school. A Dictionary of American English agrees, as 
do Harper's Latin Dictionary, Chambers' Shorter English 
Dictionary, and others, that the essence of the word alumnus 
is one who has been nourished, cherished, strengthened by 
a fostering mother. 

Two excejjlions to this concept must be noted. Horwill's 
Dictionary of .Modern American Usage states that in England 
the word is rarely used but in America alumnus is the recog- 
nized term for a college graduate or one who has hnished 
his course. .Macmillan's Modern Dictionary calls an alumna 
a graduate of a utn'versity or public school and atlds that 
iht term is sometimes applied to a pupil. In my search I have 
found only these two instances in which the meaning alumnus 
has been narrowed to graduate status. 

In ecclesiastical usage alumnus means a student preparing 
for the sacred ministry in a .seminary and is often ap|jlie<l to 
students of ecclesiastical colleges in Rome. Additionally, in 
1896 the (Jongregations of Bishops and Regulars laid down 
rules for the guidatue of bishops in regard to "alumni" who 
attend public universities: thai they be gatheretl frequently 
for spirilual (onlcrciKcs an<l the like. 

This (larilics the referente in the Oxford Dictionary to 
the use ol the word in 1615 in John Evelyn's Diary: "We saw 
an Italian comedy acted by their alumni before the (>ar 
dinals." The word was used by both Lytton in \Mfi and in 
1872 by Ix)rd .Miiito relerring to an alumnus of Cilasgow. 
In Flngland, linwevet. the word alumnus is rarely, if ever, 
used and then only jocularly. If you hold a degree you are a 
■graduate," otherwise nothing. My research indicates llial 



tlie word is rarely used anywhere except in the United States. 
There it appeared as early as 1696 in Seiuall Diary, "Lt Govr. 
. . . promised his Interposition for them as becomes such an 
.\lumnus to such an .Mma Mater." In 1815 a Massachusetts 
High School Proclamation was made: "The oldest alumnus at 
Commencement of whom I heard was Mr. Henry Hill 
(1756)." In 1823 the plural of the term was used in reference 
to "the number of .Alumni, that is, the number who have 
been educated at each college since its establishment." In 
1827 the word was used at Harvard and in 1832 at Columbia: 
in 1843 the Yale Literary Magazine asks, "Is there one 
alumnus of Yale, be he graduate or undergraduate who feels 
no concern for the reputation of our common ,\lma Mater?" 

On September 5, 1821, the first .Alumni Society (as far 
as is known) was established at Williams College. Williams- 
town, Massachusetts. The society was called "The .Society of 
the .Alumni of Williams College." and it was established 
"in order that the influence and patronage of those it has 
educated my be united for its support, protection and im- 
provement." The Preamble to its Constitution indicates the 
more specific purpose: "For the promotion of literature and 
good fellowship among ourselves and the better to advance 
the reputation and interests of our .Alma Mater." It is very 
heartwarming to know that some 1,300 or more colleges have 
students equally loyal and appreciative. 

.A more cynical note in regard to alumni associations is 
found in A Dictionary of Contemporary American Usage by 
Bergen Evans and Cornelia Evans: 

alumnus; alumni; alumna; alumnae. Learning, or lack of it, 
was for centuries enshrouded in Latin and everything about 
a college had to l)e dignified with a Latin name. In Europe 
college graduates were known by the degrees they held, but 
in .America a great many people went to college who never 
got degrees but who— to the delight and amazement of fund- 
raising officials— were often more vociferous and even more 
generous in their support of the college than many who had 
obtained degrees. It was plainly desirable to include them 
in a group that contained the graduates and to find a solemn 
name for the lot. The Latin word alumnus, foster-son, was 
chosen for the individual and alumni for the group. . . . 

The American Alumni Council, as late as this year, has 
defined an alumnus as a former student, a degree holder, or 
a holder of an honorary degree. It is true that this body i.s 
interested in educational fund raising to eiisme that the 
resources available to education are adecjuate to the ta.sk. 

The economic side of the cpiestion. Who is an alumna, is 
of little interest to us here despite our belief that it is a par- 
ticular privilege to participate in the works of educ:ition. 
Who is an alumna is a larger question. Through a study of 
word origin and by current definition :ind almost universal 
usage, she is one who with Milton "l)cluld the blight counte- 
nance of truth in the cpiiet and still ;iii of delightful studies." 
She is one who has clone this lor sufficient time at her Alma 
Mater to feel its jnilse, pledge her loyalty, and project her 
desire to be among its foster-ciiildreii-and ibis icgardless 
ol her future path. 

,A private survey of some twenty live Eastern colleges, 
secular and religions, male :iricl female, and including 
Williams, indicates that they hold the same view, and the 
.American .Alumni (Council has given the statistic to us that 
ol 1.250 to 1,300 colleges enrolled in the association, only 
two or three do/en adhere to the (Oiucpl tli.it alumna and 
graduate are synonymous. 

Perhaps we have been wrong. II so. m.iy I pai:iplira.se 
Corncillc: "llcic lioiioi binds us, ,'ind we wish to satisly it."

group in response to the plea of Pope John XXI II to help 
the laity in Latin American countries. They were supported 
by contributions through the organization. The jnupose of 
their social work was to help the poor to help themselves 
and to help the rich to become aware of the needs of the 
poor. They organized business cooperatives and mothers' 
centers. Their work is now being carried on by some twenty 
adults in five different countries — CLAIRE ,^RNOLD

1959 

It was hard to believe that our meeting in May at Patricia 
.Mmphy's C^andlclight Restaurant was a fifth aiuiiversary 
reunion. .As we gathered for luncheon in a small bancjuet 
room, Grace Perla remarked that it was only a "glorified 
smoker" (Grace, incidentally, became .Mrs. Joseph Henn 
on November I). Certaiidy the chatter, reminiscences, and 
general "catching up" made the five years dissolve rapidly. 
We discovered, I think, that none of us, despite dia[)ers and 
degrees, had changed so very much • Of the fifty present, 
Jeanie Albanese (.Mrs. .Mario Faraoni) had journeyed the 
farthest — from Rome. Her daughter Regina was born in 
I'Vbruary 19(il. Jeanne visited with her parents and grand- 
mother before returning to Rome to her husband • Sister 
'Ehomas .Marie had hoped to come, but had to leave for 
Puerto Rico shortly before the reunion. Another classmate 
who could not be present but who sent best wishes was 
Irene Chen (Mrs. Mark F'rancis) , who is livitig at 832 Neil- 
son Street. Berkeley. Calif., and would love to hear from any 
classmates visiting the West Coast • Mary Moore vacationed 
this sunmier on the West C^oast in suiniy California • .Maur- 
een Carney Jockel and her family (Joseph, a Navy lieu- 
tenant, and sons Joe, Jr., and Thomas) are now living near 
\V'ashington, D.C., while her husband spends a year on 
land to continue his schooling in Washington • Eileen 
Feeney Smith is happily settled in her new home in Rock- 
ville Centre • Kay .Anne Hennessey '60 became the wife of 
W.iller Clriffin on October 10 at Our Eady Helj) of Christians 
Church. St. Joseph's aliminae in the wedding party were 
.Mary McGrover and Suzanne Trinneer • Mary Margaret 
Farley spent the summer at Cape Cod • Eileen Moloney 
(•raziani and John enjoyed their European vacation this 
summer tremendously • Eileen Daughion '58. Marietta Trin- 
neer "62, and Suzanne Trinneer were a happy trio when they 
sailed aboard the France July 8 for a summer of sightseeing 
abroad. Thev returned aboard the America. France, Switzer- 
land, Italy. England, Scotland and Ireland were some of the 
countries they visited • Betty .Anne McDonough spent six- 
teen days traveling in California. Hawaii, the Puta Islands, 
and Las Vegas, last summer, and Thanksgiving weekend 
she'll be sinniing in Puerto Rico at Condado Beach • Wt 
were delighted, and impressed, when we heard how many 
of us hold degrees beyond the B..A. .Among them are Joan 
Guinan, Carolyn Hill Dalton, Joelyn lannone, Joan Karp, 
Joan Melomo. Eileen Graziani. .Atwie O'Coinior Gallagher, 
Teresa Rodrigues Babb. Roberta Stark. Bcltv Anne Mc- 
Donough, and Suzanne Trinneer • The luncheon reminded 
all of us. I think, of the pleasure gained by keeping in touch 
with classmates. To make this possible on a day-to-day basis, 
we woidd appreciate being informed about changes of ad- 
dress, and any other news which mav be of interest to us, 
so that we might pass them on to vou — BETT\' .ANNE

Births. The class statistics: forty married, six in religious 
orders, two lay missionaries, 23 attending graduate schools •

About Our Cover 



Alumnae Executive Secretarj' Grace Byrne Hill '21, 
B.A., M.A., LL.B., J.S.D. adjusts the hood of her 
daughter, Elizabeth Ann Hill, a Magna Cum Laude 
graduate of the Class of '64. Wife of Hany Hill, 
noted Brooklyn lawyer, Mrs. Hill also has two sons, 
Harry Jr. the third lawyer in this family and David 
who recently obtained his Ph.D. in Mathematics. 

An outstanding alumna of St. Joseph's College. 
Mrs. Hill is a member of the New York City Youth 
Board, the Mayor's Commission on Health Sei-xices, 
the New York State Bar and the Bishop's Lay Com- 
mittee for Catholic Charities. In addition to these 
civic and charitable activities, Mrs. Hill devoted two 
days each week to the Alumnae Office where she has 
organized a complete file of alumnae which makes it 
possible to locate any alumna under her maiden name 
or married name within a few seconds. Such a file 
would be ranked among the most valuable assets of 
any college, but Mrs. Hill's work desen-es a special 
accolade for the senice it has already rendered to 
the Development Fund Program. When Sister Vin- 
cent Therese. President of St. Joseph's College said, 
"No one has done more for the Development Program 
than Grace Byrne Hill," Sister Vincent Therese 
voiced the opinion of the alumnae who have unan- 
imously selected Grace Byrne Hill as the Alumna 
of the Year.

Gertrude Unser '36, is Vice-Chairman of the Board of Examiners 
of the New York City Board of Education. The Nine Member Board of 
Examiners was established upon consolidation of the Greater City of New 
York in 1898 to conduct competitive examinations for teaching, super- 
vising and other licenses for service in New York City Schools. It is a 
legally independent branch of the City school system in the administration 
of license tests. Miss Unser, Chaimian of the Board's Committee on Ele- 
mentaiy Education Licenses, broke a ti'adition of more than twenty-five 
years when she was appointed an Examiner in 1959. She was the first 
regularly appointed woman member of the Board in more than a quarter 
of a centuiy. Before her appointment to the Board in 1959 Jliss Unser 
sei-ved as Chainnan of the English Department at Flushing High School 
and as a curriculum coordinator for the New York City Academic high 
schools. Miss Unser is also the co-author of the nationally used textbook

A New Constitution — A New Alumnae Association 



UlLLIAN T. 
Acliiii; I'risuUnt, A 

I would like to take this oppoitunity to thank (he members 
of the Alumnae Association lor ihcir wonderful expression 
of interest in the growth and ex|)ansion of our Association as 
evidenced by the excellent response to the mail ballot for our 
new (ionstitution. The Kxecutive Bo.ird lai)ulated the votes: 
892 in favor and 21 opposed to its adoption. 

The Alumnae Association has a new Constitution. Our 
next job is its implementation. 

Since .Article I, paragraph ■!, of the Bylaws of the new 
Constitution ])rovides for voting by mail, we hope to develop 
a new concept of p.n(i( ip.iiioii in ilic affiiirs of the Asso- 
ciation. 

Until now. allhoush each year we increased our member- 
ship bv about one hundred, it would appear from the attend- 
ance at the mandated general meetings that there was a lack 
of interest bordering on apathy. It was disheartening, at the 
very least, to those members who seemed to be struggling in 
vain to keep the Alumnae Association vital, growing, and 
up-to-date. 

During the Development Fund drive, it became obvious 
that, indeed, there was no apathy. Rather, there was great 
interest on the part of members who for very good reasons 
had remained away from both our general meetings and 
affairs for the College. Instead of their failing the .Associa- 
tion, it would seem that the Association was failing them. 
We hope we can correct this situation in two ways: 

1. Participation in the election of officers and Executive 
Board members is no longer limited to the handful who were 
able to attend the general meetings. \'oting bv mail will pro- 
vide a broader base for our .-Association. 

2. .-\rticlc IV of the Bylaws provides us with another means 
of increasing participation by streamlining the procedures 
for the establishment of chapters. .-\s our members mo\e 
about, and move about they do, participation in the life of 
the .Association can be accomplished through chapters estab- 
lished in areas mote conveniently located. 

Our new Constitution admits to membership, in addition 
to those upon whom a degree lias been conferred by the 
College, those who have been matriculated at the College. 
This is tjuite a departure Irom the recjuirements under the 
old Constitution. It is hoped that it will be the means by 
wliich many loyal, interested alumnae who, for compelling 
reasons, left our College before graduation, can now renew 
their bonds with it. 

.A major cliange accomplished by the adoption of the new- 
Constitution is the vesting of more power in the Executive 
Board. This, it is hoped, will give the Executive Board more 
freedom and greater flexibility to respond to the needs and 
wishes of the membership. This new freedom comes about 
because many items which, inider the old Clonstitution, re- 
i|uired a vote of the entire membership to amend now. under 
the new Bvlaws. cm be amended bv a vote of the Executive 
Board. 

Article X of the Bylaws established a new financial struc- 
ture for the .Association. Your Executive Board is now in the 
process of studying ways of implementing a program of 
annual giving that it hopes to introduce in the future. 

As our .Association goes forward and expands, it will need 
the support of every alumna. This support need not be finan- 
cial if for any number of reasons best known to the individual 



DISKEN '48 
hiinriac .Isiocintinti 

member that kind ol suppoit i\ impussible. However, it will 
be possible now for every alumna to take part in the election 
of olficers and Executive Board members. The new power 
vested in the Executive Board brings with it the responsibility 
of using it wisely. 

Sui>port can take the form of informing your Executive 
Board of the kinds of affairs— spiritual, social, fund raising, 
educational— that you wish to be planned for your partici 
pation. This can be communicated directly to the Executive 
Board, which meets monthly, or to them by means of your 
class agent. 

It is our sincere hope that the iniprecedented response on 
the part of nearly one third of our entire membership to the 
vote on our new C^onstitution is more than just a straw in 
the wind. I'le:ise make it so.

What Is the Executive Board? 



SUZANNE TRINNEER 
Member, Executive Board 



'59 



When you read the new Constitution with its repeated 
references to the Executi\e Board you may liave wondered 
exactly what, and who. this Board is. Tliis article is intended 
to answer some of the questions you mav ha\e. 

1 . What is the Executive Board? 

The Executive Board is the governing body of the Alumnae 
Association. 

2. What is its function? 

The Constitution delegates to the Executive Board the 
obligation of conducting all the business of the Association, 
financial, legal, and social, and the power to make decisions 
in all of these affairs except on matters the Constitution 
specifies otherwise. 

For example, elections of officers and Board members and 
amendment of the Constitution must be by a vote of the 
entire .Alumnae .Association. On the other hand, general meet- 
ings, the budget, disbursement of moneys, and organization 
of fund-raising activities are determined by the Board. The 
Board also has the power to amend the Bylaws. 

3. Who are the members of the Executive Board? 

The composition of the Board is designated by the Consti- 
tution. The Executive Board inckides the five officers of the 
.Association and the retiring officer liighest in rank (the im- 
mediate past president) , and six members-at-large elected 
from the alumnae: one of the members-at-large must be a 
representative of the most recent graduating class. This helps 
to ensure participation in the government of the Alumnae 
Association by the newest as well as by the older members. 

In addition to these voting members of the Executive 
Board, other members are the cliaptcr chairmen and the 
executive secretary; they have a voice but no vote in Board 
business. 

4. How long do the Board members serve? 

All of the nuniljcis «•) \e tuo-year tcnn^. Ele( tions of officers 
are held ijieiniially while three memljersat-large are elected 
each year. This year, of course, the voting will lie done by 
way of mailed ballots— thus enabling greater parti(i|>ation of 
the alumnae in choosing their admini-.lialivc body. 



Officers are eligible for no more than one consecutive re- 
election. Reelection of members-at-large is not restricted in 
any way although the entire .Association benefits from a va- 
riety of representation. 

5. When does the Board meet? 

Meetings of the Executi\e Board are called at the discretion 
of the President, usually once a montli during the school year. 

6. What is some of the business 
considered at a meeting? 

The agenda at a Board meeting includes disposition of cor- 
respondence recei\ ed, disbursement of funds, activities of the 
Alumnae Scholarship Fund, selection of chairmen and plan- 
ning of programs for alumnae activities, chapter reports, 
planning of the Class .Agents \V'orkshop and Aliuiuwgrnm. 
coordination of alumnae functions, discussion of suggestions 
involving any aspect of alumnae responsibility, and, quite 
recently, counting of mailed ballots from the membership. 

7. What problems does the Board face? 

One of the biggest and oldest problems is that of getting 
active cooperation from the other members of the Association, 
especially when work is entailed, as in the organization and 
planning of major functions or through membership on the 
Board. At the present time the Board is also concerned with 
finding ways in which it can be of better service to both the 
alumnae and the Clollege so that the alumnae nicml)ership 
may feel strongly their relationship with the welfare of the 
College. 

8. What plans does the Board have 
along these lines? 

.Members of the governing body are now considering a 
number of projects that may be undertaken for the benefit 
of both College and alumnae. Included among these are 
seminars, workshops, and discussion groups in theology, phi- 
losophy, and literature, as well as other types of functions 
that will serve not only the social life but the intellectual 
needs of all .St. Joseph's graduates. The Board gratefully wel- 
comes suggestions thai will help it to make the Association 
nioie nic;nnii''liil lo nil iis nienibers.

St. Joseph's and Her Alumnae -Their Future 

An Address Givi-n at the Class Agents' Workshop. Saturday, March 20, 1965 
SISTER VIRGINIA THERESE, CSJ, '46 
Director of Development, St. Joseph's College for Women 
It is with the warmest regard that I come today to you who 
represent all the alumnae of St. Joseph's. And as I look 
around this familiar room at your fa 



your familiar faces, I am more 
than ever conscious that the dedication of our alumnae to 
the Collese pro\ ides tlie unity in an otlierwise heterogenous 
Sn'oup. As the .Alumnae .Association, with the College, ap- 
proaches its fiftieth anniversary, the membership ranges from 
the classes of the twenties and thirties all the way to the 
Class of 1965. (We have in\ited the class agents elected by 
the present senior class.) The variations in age, occupation, 
and vocation, far from being an obstacle to united action, 
should serie to broaden our vision as we try to imagine what 
the Cioliege and the Alumnae .Association should become in 
the neM twenty vears. 

And as all of us presently at the College look at all of you 
who still belong so intimately to it, we have great confidence 
that the essential spirit will not only persist but will com- 
municate itself to the generations of undergraduates to come; 
that the traditions and values will remain unchanged, while 
the size, the scope of the program, and the realization of our 
role in the community and in the extramural academic com- 
munity grow and develop in response to changing needs. 
.And that confidence has a very solid foundation in reality. 

I he alumnae took on a responsibility at the begiiuiing 
of 1963 when they accepted the decision of the Board of 
Trustees and the administration to conduct a capital cam- 
paign-and they distinguished tlienisel\es in the accomplish- 
ment of that undertaking with spectular success. The number 
of workers who came to the meetings through that winter 
and the cordiality and generosity of those who received their 
visits are now a wonderful memory, but it is more than that 
for all of us here who work with the figures and know how 
much it means to businesses and foundations, to anyone eval- 
uating an institution, to see the record of alumnae who are 
interested and loyal. 

Dy ihc end of the campaign all of us were awaie of two 
significant achievcmenLs: first, the alumnae had (ontributcd 
over S 100,000 to the library campaign (a remarkable 11 per 
(erit of the total (ontributed): second, we had renewed friend- 
ships, realized the wide-ranging extent ol the activities in 
whicli the alumnae were involved, learned how we at the 
(Allege could work with them and what we tould do for 
lliem. and the alumnae realized more lully how important 
they are as members of the College comminiity. And that 
rediscovery of ourselves as a uni()ue entity— oldest to youngest 
sharing responsibility in the goals, the work, and the mean- 
ing of the C;ollege-may well prove to be the more significant 
of the iwo achievements. 

Any program I am now about to suggest in broad objectives 
ii huilt on the conviction that the C;ollege is a synthesis of 
undergraduates, faculty, admitn'stration, and alumnae, that 
our baccalaureate degree give us pertnanent plate in this 
Olllcge as well as in our memories. VVe al llic- College assume 
that the alumnae are (ommittecl to the ideal of private edu- 
cation as a parallel educational system in this couniry and 
that we are conunilled also to fosteritig the values and goals 
of Catholic higher education in the liberal arts. Are these 
ra»h auumptions? Perhaps thi.s c|ueslion will be answered 
differently at some meeting in the near future. But these 



assumptions and this conviction, that we all share the same 
values, underly my discussion today. Logically, then, those 
values imply a certain responsibility to this College. 

1 am sure you realize that private Catholic education has 
never been in greater jeopardy than it is today. There is little 
informed public expression of opinion, political leadership, 
or frank discussion on this matter so vital to all of us. Per- 
sonal prejudices or ill-founded conclusions have yet to be 
supplanted by even a "great debate" based on a knowledge 
and understanding of all the facts and practices of American 
life, law, and custom. The vast financial assistance given to 
the development of public institutions is a threat to the 
ability of Catholic institutions to maintain faculty, equip- 
ment, and facilities that are comparable without strong sup- 
port, public or private. It has even been suggested that 
Church property should be taxable. Should this trend be 
translated into the written law of this country, we might find 
ourselves alumnae of an extirrct college. No one will be able 
to deprive us of the education we have received. Nor will 
anyone be able to judge its intrinsic worth. But what would 
a degree from a nonexistent college mean to us profession- 
ally? 

What form should our responsibility to St. Joseph's then 
take? At this point you will all sit up and brace yourselves. 
Money? That is one answer, of course. When and if you are 
able to consider financial help to a "cause," we would hope 
that you would consider St. Joseph's high on your list, that, 
if you are married, you would work out a plan with your 
husband to support both your colleges, for instance. One 
husband told me that he had to bring this to his wife's atten- 
tion becau.se she just did not think of it. Shortly, we shall 
come back to this, but I would like to point out now that 
financial support is only one way of accepting this respon- 
sibility. .At various times we may be able to contribute in 
different ways. Specifically, how? 

First, at all times we hope that we at the College will be 
remembered in your prayers— prayers that we will make wise 
choices in areas of educational policy, that we will be truly 
C:hristian, that administration and faculty will be able to live 
up to that motto so familiar to all of us, "To be, not to seem." 
It is not easy in an age of educational unrest to make deci- 
sions, but harsh facts must be faced and difficult choices made. 
It is here that we depend upon your help in tlic> most fimda- 
mental of our needs. 

Secondly, we have called upon your lime and for many of 
yon this is a real sac rifice— and we know it. You will wonder 
if we realize the complications involved just in fuiding a baby- 
sitter, pulling aside the term paper for even a day, or clearing 
your head after a hard day in your school or office. Believe 
me. the convent is no longer a "heaven haven," if it ever 
was, and we do realize, and appreciate more than it is pos- 
sible to commiuiicate, the amount ol time some of you have 
devoted at various times in your lives to alunuiae and College 
endeavors. I would like to point out hcic- lliai I nominated 
ihc- i>res<-nl officers and l.xec utive Board of ihc- .Ahnnnac Asso- 
ciation for the 1%.') Alumni .Service Award .sponsored by 
American Alumni Council for the variety of activities they 
have sponsored, for their aclajuabilily in tlie face of change, 
for their vision, and for iheir intelligent cooperation with the 



C^olli'KC admiriiscratioii. I fear thai the vast majority of us do 
not appreciate tlie hours thev spend, tlie consideration they 
jjive to various issues, and the tiine they sacriftte. Just in case 
the .Ameritan .Aluinni Council does not recognize their efforts 
with an award. I think that at least we shoidd even now give 
them a rising \ote of thanks. 

Third, a further means of support that we look for from 
you as aluniM.ie is vour representation of tlie C;ollene to others. 
.\fost of \ou make font.iits with mothers of prospective stu- 
dents and with t)usiMe^smen who may dited corporate sup 
port in our direction. The S'ew York Times reported last 
.Saturday that Philips Exeter .-Vcademy had received S7, 500. 000 
from a benefactor who had no connection with the school 
but who had been associated professionally with some of its 
alimuii and had been, obviously impressed. Alumnae of St. 
Joseph's give this sort of endorsement in many ways, as more 
than a few friends tell us from time to time. In many instances 
you boost .St. Joseph's simply by saying that you studied here. 
The good job you alumnae do is a testimony to our College. 
In both professional fields and commiuiity and parish service, 
St. Joseph's alumnae are acknowledged to be inuisual. 

Perhaps because we see all of this we at the College are 
pu/zleil when we hear .in alimina express concern that the 
.Alumnae .Association is sacrificing its autonomy, its inde- 
pendence. 

I always ask. "What do you want to be independent of?" 

Many midcrgraduates similarly look for freedom from re- 
straining academic regidations. But the rebelliousness of 
voiith is not a factor here. I'lie educated, mature woman 
naturally questions any new factor or judgment so that she 
may get answers and evaluate them for herself. 

In fact, autonomy or independence are meaningless in this 
context. .As alumnae, you are life-members of this college, 
with a variety of roles to play. .Some are peripheral, but all 
are important. We are in the "educational business" together. 
for business it has become also, and business it will continue 
to be. 

That we alumnae are an integral part of St. Joseph's should 
be a source of inspiration, courage, and pride in achievement 
—and it is. with one nagging exception. The major exception 
occurs when we discuss motiey. But so deep is our conviction 
—and here 1 speak for the administration— alxHit the primacy 
of the philosophy of our educational policy that c\en though 
1 was asked to discuss with you a new financial structure for 
the .Alumnae Association. I have had to approach the subject 
within this frame of reference. To plunge into a discussion 
of finances would be pointless unless you believe in the value 
of lurthering Catholic college education, liberal arts educa- 
tion, higher education for women. 

The new Constitution gives the Kxecutive Bo.ird great 
latitude in setting up a budget and a program of activities. 
The general plan is that the budget is midenvritten by the 
College, and that a program of financial support for the 
C;ollege will be undertaken by the alumnae. Colleges through- 
out the country operate on the basis of a program of animal 
.dumnae giving, better called an alumnae fund, as a means 
of growth. 

The Executive Board has set up a committee to propose a 
budget. This budget would be presented to the College presi- 
dent. Sister X'incent Thcrf"se, for approval. The approved 
budget would then be presented to the business officer. Sister 
.Mma ^'irgo. who would arrange a schedule of payments, and 
these moneys would be banked by the Alumnae treasurer 
.111(1 used to p.i\ for normal alumnae ex|)enses and a meaning 
ful .dumnae program of activities. 



Loss of autonomy? Interference? No— perhaps the College's

One item. AlumnanTam, subsidized by the College for the last 
few years, costs about SLIiOO per issue. The .Aliminae .Associa- 
tions gilt to the College last fall was SliKS.Od. 1 his is where 
the (|uestion of independence arises perhaps: but the second 
part of the program may make clear that the administration 
is not giving money away nor is the .Mumnae .Association 
being subsidized. The .Association would be expected to con- 
duel a program of financial support. While money may be 
raised by such social events as bridges, teas, and dances, it 
has been proved that the most effective means of raising 
money is to ask for it personally— and to ask those who are 
capable of giving and those who have some involvement. 
.Almost every college conducts this type of campaign each 
year (I should not use the word campaign here as we are not 
now planning another capital campaign but I would like 
to suggest that the technicpie is the same on a smaller scale). 
Each alumna would be contacted lor .i gift within the 
fiscal year by class representatives- not by you. the class 
agents— by classmates you would ask to reach seven or ten 
others, reporting back to you. Each alumna would be en- 
couraged to give on a pledge basis: she would be given pos- 
sible goals, but in no instance would you or the College expect 
an alumna who cannot give, and there are manv who cannot 
and should not. to feel any pressure. There are two ap- 
proaches taken in annual giving jirogranis: the achievement 
of 100 percent participation of the alumnae and the moti- 
vating of the really capable indi\ iduals to give proportionally. 

In any case, it is my strong conviction that it is vital to 
build attitudes. I would hope that an alumna who cannot give 
now would not but that she would want to do so when the 
time comes when it is possible. No one likes to give because 
she ought to but rather because she wants to. We have ex- 
perienced so much of this spirit during the campaign that it 
hardly needs saying. Those who have written to cancel pledges 
have added their deep regret at having to withdraw from 
this commitment with such sincerity that even these letters 
have been a source of great encouragement. 

I^t me be specific. Let me suggest the goal, the mechanics, I 
.nid tlie value of an annual giving program and their relation ■ 
lo you as a class agent. The goal of such a program is impor- 
tant in gaining the interest and motivating alumnae. Faculty 
salaries, special departments, or what is commonly termed 
bricks-and-mortar may be chosen as a goal. This coming year 
will be the Colden Jubilee of the (College, culminating in 
October Httif). and a juliilce gift to the C^ollege would be 
appropriate: but the William L. Dillon Child Studv Center 
will be built during this year and. since alumnae will not 
be involved in a capital campaign, it would seem fit that their 
gifts be directed toward its completion. .Alumnae, above all, 
understand the appropriateness of such a project in memory 
of Father Dillon. 

The mechanics of such :i program, to recapitulate, would 
be carefulh planned, but essentiallv one of vou from each n 
class would take the responsibility to .group your class geo- ||| 
graphically, if [lossible. assigning about ten members to be | 
approached by each representative. The representative 
would visit her classmates, discuss the program, and record 
the results of her conversation with her class agent. The re- 
minder-envelopes lor a |)ledge would be sent from the Col- 
lege .Alimin.ie Office, the money deposited (a record would 
be kept), and acknowledgments sent bv you Ironi the Col- 



lege. At the end a "telethon" might be conducted from the 
College to out-of-state classmates. Further details such as 
the timing (perhaps in the fall of 1965 for nonparticipants 
in the current campaign and for those who finished paying 
before 1965, if they would like to take a tax deduction for 
that year, and after the pledge-payment period concludes in 
March for those paying pledges) and the amounts to be 
suggested (four dollars a month, for example) would be dis- 
cussed and definitely set by an alumnae fund committee. 

The value to the College is obvious in terms of financial 
support over and above the budget provided by the adminis- 
tration for operating the .Association. Not so obvious is the 
double value your money has. Specifically, again, the amount 
contributed will be recorded for the American Alumni Coun- 
cil and for the Council for Financial Aid to Education. Cor- 
porations giving to educational projects use these figures and 
contribute according to recorded alumnae support. One com- 
pany sent us a check last year on the basis of the alumnae 
giving S260 in 1961-1962 (alumnae had not been asked to 
give that year except in one paragraph of a form letter de- 
voted to a total year's program). Other colleges with annual 



giving grograms received proportionately more because their 
alumnae had been solicited for support. At a recent luncheon 
held here at St. Joseph's for prominent Brooklyn business- 
men. Sister Vincent referred to the alumnae record during 
the campaign. During the following week a letter from one 
of our friends in the group assured us of the number of 
favorable comments on the wonderful achievement of do- 
nations totaling S400.000 from 3,200 alumnae. These men 
were impressed, and, now that we are visiting them personally 
to ask them for support for St. Joseph's, we can count on 
their knowing and appreciating this extraordinary record. 
The businessman's approach is first to explore the interest of 
alumnae. The businessman's standard is the achievement of 
the alumnae personally and professionally and. most easy to 
calculate, their record of financial support. 

The Executive Board and I want to answer any questions 
you may have. Please let us hear your suggestions. This dis- 
cussion will help both you and us to clear up whatever re- 
mains unclear. But first, may I say on my own behalf a very 
sincere tliank you for your posili\e and enthusiastic response 
to all our requests tliroughout the year. God bless you.

CLASS NOTES 



1920 

A few trips by our classmates are under consideration but 
no one has made definite plans yet. No engagements, wed- 
dings, or births— rather late in the day for that! We are grate- 
ful to be well and interested in many fields • Thank God we 
have suffered no loss by death this year. We keep in close 
touch with one another and with our dear saintly friend, 
Sister Carmela. Her prayers have been a constant source of 
comfort and inspiration. Our annual memorial Nfass for the 
deceased members of '20 and the Sisters who were so closely 
associated with us at "245" will be offered on May 5 at St. 
Boniface Church. We usually try to visit Sister Carmela on 
that day but that is governed by the state of her health when 
that day arrives • God grant success to all the works and 
plans for expansion being undertaken at St. Joseph's and bless 
ail the Sisters witli good health and every grate they need to 
meet each new day • I do hope some of us will be able to join 
in the celebration on .May 2, the dedication of the new library

The Future of ALUMNAGRAM 



.As you read this issue ol Alumtiatirum we urge you to re- 
member that its contents is made up largely of the contribu- 
tions of your fellow alumnae, if not you. We were also able 
to comjjly with suggestions from two alumnae, listing the 
cliapters and their officers and publishing a partial directory 
of out-of-state alumnae. (The latter was especially compiled 
l)y Grace M. Hill who. starting two years ago, has taken 
charge of keeping the mailing lists up-to-date: we all owe 
her much gratitude for her diligence and perseverence.) 



We would s;i\ ■tli.ink sou" to .ill wlio lulpc<l in the past 
anil call on aii\ .ilumiia (or suggestions or ideas for the issues 
to come. Wcdoex|)ctt to keep turrent the inlorniation about 
class agents, chapter oliicers. and the out-of state alumnae 
addresses, excepting the New Jersey and Connecticut alum 
nae. unless you want a number of future issues devoted onl\ 
to them— and by then a third ol vou will have moved.

THE WILLIAM T. DILLON PERPETUAL 
SCHOLARSHIP FUND 

At a meeting on June '-'i. 19(i5. the Willi.im T. Dillon Per- 
petual Scholarship Fund Committee recorded that, as of that 
date, a total of .523.013.53, including interest, was on deposit 
in the Fund. The .Scholarship .Selection Ciommittee had met 
earlier in the month and. after reviewing the scholarship and 
personal qualifications of live members of the incoming class, 
had awariled the first William T. Dillon Scholarship. The 
grant was announced at Commencement. 

Aside from some pledges still to be redeemed at that time, 
the committee decided that, despite .some pleas to continue 
retjuests to enlarge the fund, no other contributions would 
be solicited. They would hold to the original promise of a 
limited-time fund drive. In order to maintain the fund in 
perpetuity, the committee also decided to limit the award to 
a partial tuition grant. \Vhile the committee realized that the 
grant would not cover even half the tuition costs of attending 
St. Joseph's, they also acknowledged that the interested stu- 
dent has always been able to achieve the other support neces- 
sary, whether through private or public scholarship, as well 
as by part-time paid work, to attain her degree. 

The committee voted to limit the future governance of the 
fund to the members of the Selection Cominittee. which 
would be self-perpetuating.

Th(/rtsc in part: 

"...That award will make the difference in the (juestion 
of an opportunity for a college education for her. . . . 

".Nfy years as a local newspajjerman have given me an a|) 
prcciation of your moral commitment — that of yourself, the 
faculiy and the students of St. Jose|>h's — to a just social order: 
a commitment that seeks to translate into [>ra(li(al Gatholi- 
cism the eternal truths of our faith. . . ."

The Problem of Atheism 

REVEREND MICHAEL J, CANTLEY, S.T.D. 
Associate Professor of Theology, St. Joseph's College for women 



I lit- first and most essential problem in attempting to dis- 
cuss atlieism is to give an accmate and adequate definition to 
the term. This becomes a problem precisely because t)ie word 
is very loosely used. The more ortliodox will use it against die 
less orthodox; the followers of one religious persuasion will 
use it against die followers of another quite independently 
of whether they deny a God at all or simply reject die God 
advocated by the one leveling the diarge. We may remember 
diat die early Christians were regarded as adieists by their 
pagan rulers and fellow citizens. This being the case, it 
would seem necessary to place the concept of adieism in its 
proper ideological context before we can say anything truly 
meaningful about die genesis and characteristics of what 
passes for modern-day adieism. 

Etymologically. atheism is a repudiation of theism, tlie 
"alpha privative" simply negating the concept behind it. We 
should begin, therefore, with a general description of the sa- 
lient features of theistic belief. We could, perhaps, outline 
them in the following seven propositions: i 

1 . The dieist believes that there is a supreme personal 
Being Who is ontologically separate from and trans- 
cendent to the material universe; 

2. the supreme Being is Creator; 

3. against Deism, which would admit a Creator and dien 
separate Him from all further involvement in the 
world, ordiodox theism would hold that He is a prov- 
ident God Who governs what He has made, and that 
all creation remains dependent upon Him; 

1. through His omnipresence and omnipotence. God — 
though substantially distinct from creation — is never- 
dieless present to and active in it. 

5. He believes that God is also the Lawgiver Wlio not 
only set the course of nature but also directs the moral 
order forming man's conscience and sanctioning men's 
actions by either rewards or pimishments. 

6. He believes that man's relationship to God must be 
outwardly expressed in cultic worship and sacrifice 
through which he acknowledges both his dependence 
upon God and God's absolute sovereignly over him. 

7. Finally, a more refined dieism will also include the 
conviction thai God's existence can be proved through 
the natural liglit of human reason; and, that God can 
reveal Himself to man. 

In the light of a theism such as we have just described it, 
many would qualify as atheists. Pantheistic religions would 
be atheist to die extent that they lailcd to [)reserve God's 
ontological distinction from the world; polytlieists would 
qualify as atheists because their numerous gods would all be 
limited, at least to the extent that one would lack what an- 
other had and vice versa. F^ven great diinkers like Aristotle 
would not be completely theisl. His supreme Being is llie 
final cause of the world but neither its edicient cause nor its 
providential ruler, flegel loo qualilies as an atheist becau.se 
the "abwdule spirit" of his philosophy is one totally imma- 
nent to and developing within the toirsciousness of luimaniiy.

Hegel's doctrine was a unique type of dialectical monism. 
His absolute was not die Christian God Who is Lord of his- 
tory, but a principle internal to and developing within the 
historical process itself. He distinguishes his absolute from 
the God of religion by subordinating God to "absolute spirit" 
as an imperfect and symbolic way of considering the "abso- 
lute spirit" itself. Dr. James Collins suggests that the term 
"adieist" is an elusive one to define and diat in its broadest 
signification it should be described as "a denial of the pre- 
\ailing conception of God or die divine."- But, as the "pre- 
vailing conception of God" can shift from time to time and 
age to age, the meaning of atheism can likewise shift. Histori- 
cally speaking, there have been attempts to eliminate God in 
a complete and absolute way. But, as Collins obsei^ves; 

In studying diese attempts, it is helpful to employ die dis- 
tinction between the philosopher's intention of establish- 
ing an absolute atheism and the actual extent of his rejec- 
tion of God. For although die absolute atheist aims in 
principle at discrediting every dieory of God, his criticism 
rests in fact upon a consideration of a few prominent theo- 
ries about God which are in the forefront during his life- 
time.''' 

The period under discussion is. of course, our own, since 
it is the posture of adieism in our own country and our own 
day diat causes us distress. But twentieth-century American 
adieism is so deeply rooted in the intellectual rebellion of 
the nineteendi century that our historical examination must 
begin diere. The late Daniel-Rops has pointed out in a recent 
book diat the political crisis of die past two centuries has 
often masked a far more profound conflict, the one diat has 
been taking place in the area of religion. He says; 

I'he "great Western revolution" spoken of by one of its 
leaders, Auguste Comtc, might reveal itself through the 
overthrow of political regimes, through national iq)risings 
or through .social crisis; but it was substantially more than 
diat — something spiritual, metaphysical. The din of riot 
and war echoed a more dreadfid sound — the straining of 
God and man locked in conflict.' 

F'ather de Lubac in The Drama of Allirist JIuuuinism ob- 
serves diat there is a fresh attack on faith in every age. .Some- 
times it is historical criticism that seems to totter die structure 
of faith by weakening its foinidations through :i fresh exami- 
nation into the meaning ;ind background of the Bible, or per-

Uiat the whole range of being is open to his omniscient rea- 
son and the very possibility of mystery is rejected out of hand 
and liinnan explanations are substituted tor the miraculous 
events re|)orted in the sources of revelation. 

During the nineteenth century the attack on religion was 
mounted on both fronts. .Auguste Comtc worshipped at the 
altar of reason where he founded his religion of humanity 
on his dogma of positix ism. And rebels from l)a\ id Strauss 
through Clhristian Baur and I'.rnest Renaii down to the lib- 
eral school of Protestant theology of our own day explained 
away the miraculous content of die Bible as mere myth. 
Their target was not merely the Oluirch or die historical real- 
ity of die figure and message of Christ i)ut. as Daniel-Rops 
says: "it was the '\erv idea of a nnstery to be believed.' the 
demands of f.iiili. the iiucllcc iu:il .icceptance of religious 
data."'' 

The nineteenth century, the post-Hegelian era, saw the 
emergence of an atheism that unashamedly aimed at elimi- 
nating CJod from modern man's accepted convictions. Pre- 
\ ions ages had considered the atheist position as negative and 
destructive. .And atheism was rarely publically espoused by 
the principal thinkers of the clay. During the nineteenth cen- 
tury, however, it was openly held by .sc\eral intellectual lead- 
ers and tlius attained a measure of respectability. To the 
extent that atheism became associated with certain major 
trends in science, culture, and morality it attained a corre- 
s|)onding measure of popular currency. It was presented as a 
positive element within the scientific and humanistic trend 
in society. .As such, atlieism was not the result of a single, mas- 
sive movement but the convergent effect of many separate 
trends, often sharply divergent on many important cjuestions 
but solidly united in regarding itself as a liberating force in 
man's life, a force diat frees him to s|)cculate without re- 
straint and. in the inanagemciu of his practical affairs, leaves 
him completely unencumbered. But each of the atheistic 
philosophers left his own peculiar stamp on die doctrine he 
created and propagated. Feuerbach, through a radical criti- 
cism of his master. Hegel, and an application of the psycho- 
genetic mediod. attempted to substitute andiropology for 
theology. (Psychogencsis is the technitpie of trying lo trace 
l)elief in God back to certain human drives.) Nietzsche pre- 
sided at the wake of the Cod he claimed to ha\e killed. Comte 
became high priest of a humanistic religion in which man 
was venerated as deity. With his now famous dictum. "There 
is only one absolute law and that is there is nothing abso- 
lute," he rejected laws and causes and bound man in a posi- 
tivistic straightjackct in whidi everything was explainecl sci- 
entifically in terms of experience. Dewey and the disciples of 
.American naturalism viewed the realm beyond nature as 
illusory and withdrew into a narrow search circumscribed by 
this worldly task and its goals. These four founders of modern 
atheism do not exhaust the investigation into the phenome- 
non of atheism. There still remain such figures as Marx and 
such philosophical development as logical positivism. .Above 
all. there remains the vast subject of the atheist wing of exis-

lentialism. We limit ourselves lo the four mentioned because 
they set the basic trends that others picked up and developed 
further but always along ilie lines already set. We a\oid treat- 
ing existeniialisin with good conscience because it will be 
licilcd in the next lecture. 



Ludwig leiierbach (I804-1872) is our first subject for exam- 
ination. He was a onetime theology student who later 
studied under Hegel. He embarked u|jon a teaching career 
in IHliK but found it financially unrewarding and so retired 
to a life of private study and writing. The titles of his numer- 
ous published works — The Essence of Christianity (1811) 
and The Essence of Religion (1845) are two of lire most well 
known — gixe the im[)ression that theological cpiesiions were 
his consiani |)reoccupation. He admits that religious cjues 
tions make u]j the main dieme of his writing. But we must In- 
careful to understand this properly. Feuerbach did not mean 
that he believed in a Cod having objective existence apart 
from human thought. Rather, he was interested in trying u> 
clarify the place and function of religion in human dioughi. 
Frederich C^opleston describes Feuerbach's interest in theo 
logical cjuestions in this way: 

Religion was not for him an unim|)ortant phenomenon, 
an unfortunate piece of superstition of which we can sav 
that it would ha\e been better if it had never existed and 
that its effect has been simply that of retarding man's de- 
velopment. On the contrary, the religious consciousness 
was for Feuerbach an integral stage in the development of 
human consciousness in general. .At the same time he re- 
garded the idea of God as a projection of man's ideal for 
himself and religion as :i temporal. e\en if essential, stage 
in the development of human consciousness. He can be 
said, therefore, to have substituted anthropology for 
dieology." 

Essentially, if we are to 117 to give a simple comprehensive 
judgment of Feuerbach's intent, we must say drat he tried to 
gi\e a psychological explanation to religious phenomena and 
that he considered religious phenomena a mass illusion, even 
if a necessary one.' In his book on religion he asserts diat 
Cod is a myth in which man expresses his aspirations. He sa\s 
that persons who have no desires have no gods, that the gods 
are the wishes of men expressed in tangible or svmbolic form. 

In order to explain the mechanism involved in man's crea- 
tion of the gods, Feuerbach has recourse to the Hegelian con- 
cept of "alienation." although he completely transforms the 
meaning of this concept in his use of it. He claims that man 
divests himself of ;in essential quality in order to possess an 
illusive reality.* .Attributes such as wisdom, love, and justice 
are absolute qualities diat constitute man's own being. How- 
ever, they appear too great for him. He spontaneously pro- 
jects them outside himself and objectifies them in some imag- 
ined foiTn which he calls "Cod." .As Dr. Collins expresses it. 
for Feuerbach, "Religion is the \eiy process of projecting oiu 
essential being into the ideal sphere of dixinity and then 
humbling ourseKes before our own objectified essence. In 
worshipping God. men are really paying homage to their own 
reliiKjuished essence, viewed at an ideal distance.""

Appealing to the Hegelian dialectic of history, Feuerbach 
justifies this "alienation" that takes place in man as a neces- 
sary step in which mankind, as a whole, develops. In the 
rhythmic flow of history, it represents die negative or antithe- 
sis phase of man's de\elopment that leads to the synthesis in 
which mankind will again come into possession of his own 
essence now enriched by his having been alienated from it 
and having fought to get it back. Feuerbach believed tliat diis 
stage could not be skipped. Had this step not appeared in the 
human story, man would never have come to a conscious real- 
ization of his own greatness. The gods are only die sum total 
of the qualities that make man great. The Christian God rep- 
resents man's alienation in its most perfect form. That is 
why. for Feuerbadi, man is never so completely alienated 
from himself as he is in Christianity. He finds Christianity 
to be the worst of all man's religions precisely because it is 
the highest form of religion. Man's salvation is to be found 
in discovering the real meaning of religion. He can dien dis- 
pense with God and devote his whole energies to cultivating 
the perfections of his own essential being. 

By a strange twist, Feuerbach docs not want to dispense 
witli religion. Having excised God, he would retain the reli- 
gious spirit as a means of fixing man's attention on himself. 
For him, quoting Collins again, "The valid (since it is com- 
pletely anthropocentric) meaning of religion is to devote one- 
self to the improvement of relations of I-and-Tliou among 
men, based on the exclusively immanent motive of mutual 
love and sharing in the same essential nature, "i* Feuerbach- 
ian antliropocentricity does not lead to egoism because man's 
essence is social. This, again, is a conclusion about man that 
the philosopher inherited from Hegel — but again for a differ- 
ent reason. Hegel bases die social unity of man on the degree 
to which he becomes one with the absolute spirit. It is 
achieved, dierefore, only on the level of pure thought, Feuer- 
bach was not satisfied with diis. The ground of unity, for 
him, is founded on the biological le\el, on sexual differen- 
tiation. But the relationship between man and woman is not 
merely a biological dillerente but is determinative of distinct 
ways of thinking, feeling, reacting; i.e., it is something diat 
affects the whole personality. Feuerbach's intention seems 
not to be oriented merely to biological or social manifesta- 
tions of difference and dependence but to use this obvious 
male-female relational situation to make his central point 
that man's anthropocentrism is based on a fundamental real- 
ity and not on pure thought. Sexual differentiation shows 
that individual man is incomplete, that die I-Thou exchange 
u as fundamental as the complementarity of the male-female 
relationship. (;opleston suggests that we might expect Feuer- 
bach to tarry this insight to the logical conclusion that the 
unity of man woidd lead ultimately to a su|)ranational so- 
ciety. In point of fact, however, he did not see a withering 
away of the state, but rather idealized die state: politics be- 
comes man's religion and atheism a condition of this religion 
since tlieistit religion tends, according to Feuerbach, to dis- 
•olve rather dian unite the state. 

It is a well-known fact that .Marx and Kngels were enam- 
ored of Feuerbach's thought. But, as Gilson points out, what 
is perhaps not sfj widely known is the fact that Feuerbach's 
thought was radically changed by Marx. Feuerbach would 
not have considered himself a maieri.ilisi, except in the lim- 
ited sense that (he maierial was the foundation of the human 
essence and of knowledge — it is material looking backwards 
but not (orward.). Marx developed this materialism to the 

"/fcirf., p. 245; ct. alio E, Cilion, The Unity ol Philoiophiial l-.x/ifrirnrr 
(Hn York: (.harlo Scribner'« Soni, IMO), p. 2SI. 



extent diat everything is eidier material itself or rooted in 
and strictly determined by die material. Moreover, Marx 
linked the material with a Darwinian type of evolution gov- 
erned by die laws of Hegelian dialectic leading inexorably 
to die development of matter and the development of all the 
biological and social phenomena that are rooted in and deter- 
mined by matter.ii Hence die dialectical materialism of die 
Communist philosophy: "materialism," based on Marxist in- 
terpretation of Feuerbach, and "dialectical," based on Marx- 
ist interpretation of Hcgelianism. 

The revolution in which Feuerbach played such an impor- 
tant part is significant, certainly for die social revolution of 
Communism to which it was an essential contributor, but 
also for a reason extreinely significant in the total history of 
man as a religious being. Down to his time, the transcendent 
God was man's liberator and the guarantor of man's con- 
tinued freedom. Now, suddenly, this same God becomes a 
yoke to destroy man's freedom and alienate him from himself. 
The God Who was die seal of man's greatness becomes his 
antagonist, die enemy of his dignity, 

rriedrich Nietzcche (1844-1900) was the channel through 
which die atheistic implications of much of nineteendi-cen- 
tury science and culture entered our own age. His mentor in 
his atheistic position was Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860). 
First, therefore, we should say a brief word about Schopen- 
hauer. He argued diat die principle of sufficient reason, upon 
which all rational proofs for God's existence are based, is 
applicable only to certain cause-effect relationships and only 
widiin die phenomenal area. Since God is supposed to be the 
absolute spiritual Being, and the principle of sufficient rea- 
son applies only to sensible reality, all arguments for God's 
existence based on it are gratuitous. Schopenhauer also re- 
jected die Kantian approach to God through practical reason 
since practical reason lacks any distinctive coiuent aiul, any- 
way, is subject to die very same limitations of the principle 
of sufficient reason. He recognized one nominal reality, the 
blind, cosmic "will-to-live," and taught that it is not grasped 
through reason biu through an irrational intuition. This 
"will-to-live" is die source of all anxiety and pain. Man nuist 
therefore .seek to conquer it through ascetical practices, con- 
templation, or altruistic activities. The Schopcnhauerian 
view of life leads ultimately to nihilism. 

The unconditioneil frank atheism of Schopeidiauer was 
attracti\e to Nietzsche. He viewed it as the oidy honest posi- 
tion for anyone who was aware of ilic hiuiian advances man's 
science was making and its implications for the rest of man's 
cidture. The comfortable o[)timism of Western cidtiue was 
boiuid to be cleared away in the backwash of the oii-nnining 
tide of m;in's progiess. Man's life is a ceaseless bcioming not 
regulated by any structure iidieriled from the past and in- 
nocent of any absolute internal laws or value stand. irds. The 
real world is an undillereruiated and indeterminate abyss of 
energy and passion. The oidy iniiversal trail it exhibits is a 
certain "will-to-power," 

Nietzsche is conscious dial he is guilty of generalizing here. 
He is also .iware that lo do so puts him Ixyond ihe phenom- 
enal realm he has set as die limil of ui:in's ability lo know or 
re.ison. However, he justifies hinisell wilh an appeal lo scien- 
tific method, which retonmiends uniformity of ex|>lanalion 
indess there is evidence to the contrary, Nietzsche says dial if 
man looks at him.self he discovers evolutive growth and "will- 
lopower," and he concludes from lliis that he iniist, by this 



fxpcriciin-, l)c in the prt;M'rKC of a unJM'isal law. As a matter 
of fact. Nii'tAsclic coiitciuls, Danviniaii cvoluiioii aiul natural 
selection .seem to bear out man's own personal experience. 
He appeals to history aiuI philology tu witness to the (onslant 
fluidity of man's institutions and language. From this he ton- 
eludes that man is caught up in an ine.xorahle evolutionary 
flow and power struggle that points to becoming and the 
"willlo-power" as die only discernible suljstructure of all 
reality. 

Observation convinces us that there are structures and rela- 
tionships discernible in man's world. But Niei7j>die holds 
Uiat they are only the products of man's "will-to-powcr." Con- 
cepts like "law" and "value" are tools pragmatically intro- 
duced by man to give order and meaning to his i)art of the 
universe of becoming. Knowledge is, therefore, not a relation 
of conformity to an absolute standard of truth, and morality 
is not a relation of conformity to an absolute norm. Both 
knowledge and morality are the product of the posture as- 
sumed by man's "will-to-|)ower." "To know means to create: 
to legislate means to set values. Because diey are of purely 
human origin, knowledge, law. morality, value, and so forth 
are completely subject to man's whim as the human knower. 
legislator, and evaluator. These structures arc completely 
immanent in man and cannot, therefore, lead beyond him. 
It is meaningless to proclaim an absolute truth, law, or value. 
There are no transcendent values: there is no transcendent 
Being. 

Niet/sche now has the arms with which to do that for whiclr 
he is most noted; i.e., to kill God or at least to preside at 
God's wake. The death of God has a special meaning for 
Nietzsche. God was dead for Feuerbadi and Marx either be- 
cause of the speculative impossibility of proving His existence 
or as a result of the purely cultural and social report that the 
generalitv of man no longer believed in Him. But Niet/sdie 
adds a new dimension. For him. God is not to be believed in 
because He is no longer believable. In The .AuliclirisI, 
Nietzsche says: 

That we find no God — cither in history or in nature or 
behind nature — is not what differentiates us, but that we 
experience what has been revered as God, not as "gcnllike' 
but as miserable, as absurd, as harmful, not merely as an 
error but as a crime against life. We deny God as God. If 
one were to prove this God of the Christians to us. we 
should be even less able to believe in him.i- 

In commenting on diis text. Dr. Collins says: 

This revealing text shows the passionate depth of Nietz- 
sdie's antitheism, its voluntaristic aspect which would re- 
fuse to accept a demonstration, its recognition of Christian 
theism as the supreme enemy, and its indictment of God 
on vitalislic. moral and humanistic grounds. God is dead 
in the emphatic sense that the idea of God no longer rep- 
resents the highest value but is at least rejected as die su- 
preme disvalue or antithesis to human life and ideals. '■'' 

Nietzsche's method of substantiating this charge is similar 
to the psydiogenetic approadi of Feuerbadi. He reads history 
in reverse, and by this method in retrospect constructs the 
dcKtrine that tlie concept "God" is the ground of all that is 
harmful and destructive of human nature. The idea of die 
deadi of God is, dien, a synthetic construct obtained bv using 
history in the way prescribed by Nietzsche's theory of knowl-

edge. If to knotv means to create, then the knowledge of Gml 
was created. To rid mankind iif the idea and to de\:due all 
the institutions and structures that flowed from that idea, 
m:in h;is simply to retrace die concept back clown the course 
of history. 

It seems evident diat Niei/sdie's rejection of (.ml prcKceds 
principally from his view of what belief in G(xl has done to 
man. The ilecisixe moii\e for man's rejecting (iod is that he 
niiglil l.ikc God's place. .\s :i theoretical att;ick on theism, 
Niet/sthe's arguments are worth little. The danger lies in 
another direction. Their seduction lies in enticing man to 
cut him.self loose from all restraints. .Some |x.'ople believe that 
there is no necessary connection between belief in GcxI and 
acceptance of Christian values. But Niel/sdie had no sudi 
illusion. The "death of God" would inevitably lead, sooner 
or later, to a rejection of all absolute standards and ulti- 
mately remove the order, peace, and harmony diat cannot 
exist without an absolute norm. Inasmuch as Western man 
has been brought up to live with certain values he now faces 
a crisis. These values are wedded to belief in God. Destroy 
the foundation and you destroy these values: destroy diesc 
values and you destroy all value, and man faces nihilism — not 
because there are no other values but because man knows no 
other values except die ones of which he has now been de- 
prived. Man's nihilism can be a passive acquiescence to a 
purposeless existence or an active force that seeks to destroy 
what it no longer believes in. Nietzsche prophesied the latter 
and a series of earth-shaking and destructive ideological wars. 
The end of the struggle is the advent of .Superman. But Su- 
perman is not the end product of a process of evolution and 
natural selection. Rather. Superman will come only if cour- 
ageous individuals appear first to "transvalue all values."'-* 
to create new values. These new values will give new goals to 
man in the concrete. Superman is only a mvth. a personifica- 
tion of what man is cajiable of Ijeing. 

The most familiar example of diis transvaluation of values 
is to be found in Nietz.sdie's Beyond Good and Evil. Nietz- 
sche's moral doctrine sounds, at the beginning, like pure util- 
itarianism. He sees morality as a means of preserving society. 
Morality begins with the compidsion to get the individual 
to confonii. This is followed by the force of custom. Even- 
tually, the authority of the community is introjected in what 
Freud would call the "super-ego" and what both he and 
Nietzsche would mistake for what we call conscience. Obe- 
dience follows this internalization of community ideals and 
becomes pleasant since it brings approval widi it. .And, dius, 
morality is born with its ideas of virtue and the virtuous 
person. 

The thing that Nietzsche attacks is not morality but a uni- 
form absolute moral system equally applicable to all. This 
miifomi morality is a slave morality, a defense medianism of 
the weak, where weak qualities such as sympathy, kindness, 
and humility are extolled and made virtues simply to shackle 
indix iduals of strong and independent nature. This is essen- 
tially a herd morality, and its values arc die articulation of 
the needs and fears of the herd. It arises only because the 
weak fear the strong and attempt to curb them widi the asser- 
tion of absolute herd standards. When, therefore. Nietziche 
speaks of standing beyond good and evil, what he really 
means is rising above this herd morality and consequently 
asserting one's independence bv breaking out of die medicK- 
rity imposed by the traditional moral restraints. Transvalua- 
tion is a search for different motives for acting. But it is sig- 
nificant that when it comes to describing the content of a new 

'• Coplcsion. op.cit., pp. 414 ff. 



\alue system Nietzsdie is mute. It is easy to see immediately 
die fallacy in Nietzsche's critique — viz., its one-sidedness. It 
is simply a caricature of traditional morality to describe its 
motivation as a self-preserving fear of superior strength. 

Auguste Comie (1798-1857) was born a Catliolit but early 
discarded both the religion and tlie royalist politics of his 
parents. Dr. Collins tells us that: 

Comte's atheism was a characteristic nineteenth-century 
variety for three reasons: it was based on a cultural analy- 
sis of the widespread loss of faiUi: it filled the void, caused 
by die denial of God, by absolutizing somediing relative, 
it justified itself by means of an inevitable historical law.i-'> 

Comte's basic postulate is that the human mind, in its devel- 
opment, passes necessarily through three successive stages. 
First is the dieological stage. This is a stage of unreality in 
which the mind graduates dirough fetishism and polytheism 
to monodieism. It is a stage in which man attempts to explain 
die "world" in terms of animating forces that an evolutionary 
law gradually purifies until these forces are capitulated in the 
highest form of religion, monotheism. Refutation of this first 
postulate is hardly necessary today since anthropological and 
sociological studies have made it patently clear that mono- 
theism is not the end product of an evolution, but that poly- 
theism and. a fortiori, animism, fetishism, and the rest are 
corruptions of an original monotheism and that the more 
civilized polytheistic religions all tended, in their golden age 
at least, toward henotheism. The second stage Conite postu- 
lates is the metaphysical. In this stage man sees die world as 
an ordered whole, each part linked to another, and the sum 
of the parts linked to an ultimate explanation by a chain of 
causes. This stage, however, he sees as only intermediate and 
not really original in character. It is transitional. The mind 
is linking die data of obsenation together in a scheme that 
is no longer entirely supernatural but not yet entirely nat- 
ural. This seems to be what metaphysics means to Comte: 
theological considerations or explanations modified by phys- 
ics. TTie final stage is die positivist one. The mind now con- 
fines itself to die study of the facts of experience and states 
them as laws. Collins points out that, for Comte: 

The positivistic state of knowledge has seven traits: it is 
real, useful, precise, certain, organic, relative, and sympa- 
thetic. It confines itself to a study of the general facts or 
laws of our relative, phenomenal world, widi no regard 
for nomenal entities. Its method is nonintrospective and 
iionteleological.'" 

I his law of the "three general states of the human mind 
and of society" is the framework for the whole of Comte's 
doctrine. He applies it rigidly, so rigidly, in fact, that he 
completely overlooked data a\ailable in his own day wliidi 
>houl<l have caused him to modify his position soiiuwhal. 
And there also seems to be something of a trap built into his 
whole system. If man's knowledge and explanation of the 
world around him — his phenomenological physics — began by 
being theological, one would wonder why it would not be 
jmt as true to say diat man's iheologiial knowledge began as 
physics, since it obviously began with observations dial h.id 
lo be explained. If this is true, one wonders why the law of 
evolution ends by ex|>elling only ih(olf)gy and not physics

also. If bodi are in at die foundation, why are they not both 
purified by being distinguished one from the other and as- 
signed their proper roles in giving a total explanation of 
man's world. i' If dierc is a reason, beyond the original preju- 
dice of the framer of the "three laws," it is too elusive to be 
captured and described. 

.Monotheism comes in for a special clubbing by Comte. He 
saw monotheism as the corroded effect of too much critical 
examination of die imaginative age that created the gods of 
the polydieistic religions. .As long as religion remained poly- 
theistic, Comte believed diat it could be compatible with 
man's rational nature and instincts. With monotheism, theol- 
ogizing lifted man's siglits to the supernatural. In a lower 
foi-m of religious belief like fetishism, the principle of life is 
attributed to all things so diat each is moved by its own vital 
power. Polytheism wididraws this animating power from in- 
di\idual things and locates it in imagined duties. Bui mono- 
theism represents a consolidation, a gathering of all cosmic 
force into one God, and completely alienates this force from 
man's world. Because of this, monotheism cannot long en- 
dure. It contributes nothing of itself because it is only "a re- 
duced and concentrated polytheism." It leads, by its very 
nature, to the ontological stage of man's development. And 
ontology is the stage of man's transition into the world of 
physical explanation. Catholicism, the highest form of mono- 
theism, is die object of a constant flow of invccti\e from 
Comte. He accuses its exponents of failing to understand its 
true nature, and he condemns its morality as pretentious. 
Having j)ostidated this judgment as actual fact, Comte con- 
cludes diat the otgain/aiioiial function played in the past by 
theology must now be replaced by the highest of the positi\e 
sciences, his own — sociology. 

For Comte, the chief characteristic of the positive mind 
and the chief evidence for its maturity was the fact that it 
gave up the search for the idtimate "why" of things which 
characterized man in bodi the theological and metaphysical 
stages of his development. In the positivist stage, man no 
longer wonders aliout the causes or ultimate reason for ob- 
servable [jheiKjniena. The only thing that interests him is 
ascertaining the laws according to which the ob.servable hap- 
pens. Because of this posture, Conite has been called an ag- 
nostic. In a letter to John .Sluarl Mill in 181,5, Comte rejects 
the name of atheist. Bui he al.so does not remain in an agnos- 
tic position. His aim is to go beyond atheism. He claims to be 
able to eliminate God by exposing the illusion dial brought 
about belief in CJod. But he does not try to ilemoiisirate the 
nonexisieiice of God either. He simply attempts to explain 
man in such .i way ih.il no room lor (lod rem.n'iis. Indeed, he 
finds thai any belief in CJod would i)e disaslrous for man be- 
(ause it would lead him to pay homage lo .i Being Who. 11 He 
existed, would actually be a degraded being pulled down by 
His own self-love. However, once God w.is shut out, some- 
thing had to lake His place. God had fulfilled teriain real 
needs in man. (.od's eliminalloii did not elimiiiale ihose 
needs. I'ositivism woidtl replace Him with "humanity." 
(;omlc believed that .social anarchy could be overcome and 
social progress achieved when himian welfare bec.inie the 
supreme end of all the .sciences. To bring this about is die 
work of the posilivist's "religion of hunianily." Comie

in its monotheistic fomi. is what Ckimte fnmly rejected. Yet, 
as noted aljove. man still has a need for immortality. Ciomlc 
offers him an incorporation into humanity as such. With die 
purifying event of tieath. our acts like our biological exist- 
ence perish. But the results of our acts in this life live on in 
history and influence future generations. 'Ihe only immortal- 
ity Comte allows us is the realization that we will affect the 
future dirough the social institutions to which we have made 
a contribution. 

Setting forUi a problem does not leave much room for criti- 
cism and reply. But, in addition to what we said before about 
Comte's law of the three stages failing to take accoiuit of or 
being contradictcti by certain developments in various sci- 
ences, may we now add that his substitute answers for the 
questions raised by hmnan nature do not seem to be in any 
way adequate: and to erect the relative discoveries of positive 
observation into an absolute position does violence to all the 
basic forms of logical reasoning. 

A scientifically oriented naturalism, sucli as we have seen 
in die previous writers, is one that is based on both a meUiod- 
ological and metaphysical denial of any being that lies be- 
yond the natural powers of man. This kind of naturalism is, 
of course, atheistic. It took root in .\merican thought largely 
through the work of John Dewey (1859-1952). There were, 
of course, others, such as Woodbridge. .Santayana. and Cohen, 
to mention only a few. ^s■lu) contributed to this development. 
However, Dewey's thought was. perhaps, the most compre- 
hensive or, at least, the most influential. Hence, we shall con- 
centrate briefly on him. 

Like the older European philosophers we Iiave already 
mentioned, the .\mcrican naturalists see dieir thought as 
post-modern, the philosophy of the future, llieir naturalism 
begins with the fundamental premise that nature is a con- 
tinuous whole and diat it is knowable through one general 
method. This mediod is identified with the general logic of 
the sciences. The objects of nature are studied by the partic- 
ular procedures of die indi\ idual sciences (biology, physics, 
and so forth). But these iliverse procedures retain their valid- 
ity as avenues of genuine knowledge only within the general 
logic of the experimental disciplines. Some naturalists (Sid- 
ney Hook is one for example) may grant that there are as- 
pects of man and nature which are grouped in ways not sub- 
ject to scientific method. Vet they attach qualifications to this 
admission that all but eviscerate it. For example, they will sav 
Uiat any aspect of being not subject to the logic of the sci- 
ences is, strictly speaking, unknowable no matter how deeply 
we feel about it or how firmly we believe we grasp it in 
this noncognitive way. The naturalist holds that all aspects 
of the real are accessible to us only Uirough the comprehen- 
sive logic of the sciences.is Therefore, as Collins puts it, 

" Cf. Collins, God in Modern Philosophy, pp. 270-71. 



... to qu.dify as a genuine adxance in the reliable human 
way of knowing, any addiiionai or newly dis(i(\ered ap- 
proach must first adjust iisill lo liie natuialistic thesis 
about the continuity of iiicilnxl .iiid the totality of ii.i 
lure.'" 

Since OotI is traiiscendant to this logic of the sciences, the 
naturalist concludes that He cannot be grasped by any reli- 
able method of human cognition. 

The .American variety of atheist naturalism is distinguished 
by two things: antireductionism .ind antidualism. The first 
is an ellort to oppose any movement to retluce all things to 
mere mechanical explanation. Reductive naiiir:ilism is pure 
materialism. It maintains that die higlur elements in human 
life — sudi as love, friendship, culture, and thought itself — 
are nothing more than matter in mechanical operation. The 
American naturalists reject this simple reduction to the level 
of mere material cause. They espouse a nonreductive type of 
materialism that advocates the causal primacy of tlie ni:iterial 
but leaves room for higher forms of organization. This .Amer- 
ican antireductionism is, of course, seriously ambiguous. (Col- 
lins says: 

Naturalism accommodates a pluralism of forms and func- 
tions, but not a pluralism of beings existing without in- 
trinsic dependence upon matter. It remains radically re- 
ductive with respect to any sort of being whose existential 
act wouki be distinct in kind from, and causally unredu- 
cible to, the material diing. Thus diere is (in reality) a 
naturalistic reduction of every existential act to intrinsic 
dependence on matter.-" 

The second characteristic of American naturalism is also a 
negative position diat opposes any ascription of thiiig^i to a 
transcendent Cause or any recognition of an immaterial prin- 
ciple in man. The naturalist hopes in this way to defend the 
integrity of nature and the general competence of the logic 
of die science against die claims of a transcendent metaphys- 
ics. In his very enlightening chapter on Dewey in Makers of 
the Modern .\[iri(l, Thomas Neill. having spoken of Dewey's 
iniellectual openness, adds an interesting sentence about his 
antidualism that puts Dewey right in the stream of naturalist 
thought and makes him one of the real spokesmen of the 
.American form of naturalism. Dr. Neill says: 

Dewey seems to have maintained this intellectual adapta- 
bility only among diose who agreed with him in basic 
principles and differed merely in minor matters. A Thom- 
isl, an .Aristotelian, or a British empiricist, on the other 
hand, would have no influence on Dewey, who had an 
almost pathological aversion to any dualist system.-* 

The precise contribution of Dewey to our discussion was 
his representation of God as a threat to nature and to scien- 
tific mediod. He diarges die dieist with cowardliness. Travel- 
ing the path odiers had blazed before him, notably Feuer- 
bacli, Dewey offers us a psychogenetic account of the origins 
of man's belief in God. Man is shaken by adversity, mystified 
by unexplained diaiigc, frightened by his own contingeni 
being. He yearns for security and by an extrapolation creai- 
die world of the absolute where he can be safe. The tlieisi i- 
deluded into thinking that this absolute world is real. He . 
proceeds to convert diis transcendental crutch into an inde- I

peiidently existing necessary Being. God is nothing but a 
hypostatized ideal. 

The underlying reasons for Dewey's rejection of God have 
already been mentioned: he believes tliat die recognition of 
God involves both a discontinuity in nature that goes directly 
against the antidualism of American naturalism and, also, 
the admission of God's existence in\ olves one in a reduction- 
alism, a devaluation of nature, precisely because it shows na- 
ture to be finite, contingent, and clianging over against the 
infinite, necessary, and immutable God. For Dewey, Western 
tradition was dualistic because it viewed reality in terms 
of body-spirit, matter-form, substance-accident. As Dr. Neill 
puts it: 

. . . Dewey had reinforced his temperamental hunger for 
unity with Hegelian and Darwinian theories tJiat made 
the knower and the known both somehow part of the same 
biological and material matrix.-'- 

Dewey has two additional reasons for rejecting God. First is 
an epistemological reason: he believes that knowledge of 
God rests upon a special intuitive vision of Him, and there- 
fore it destroys the continuity of scientific method. This, of 
course, is easy to answer. Throughout the whole history of 
philosophy, no realistic theism has ever laid claim to any 
special intuitive knowledge of God but has always claimed 
tiiat knowledge of God is the end product of a rigid scientific 
inferential process, resting securely on evidence drawn from 
the public domain of sensible objects interacting causally 
upon one another. Dewey's second reason for denying God's 
existence is actually social in character. Like Comte he be- 
lieved that to accept God makes man a mere spectator in this 
world; one who, if he does not actually hate this terrestrial 
existence will, at least, refrain from involving himself in it 
and in its problems. This, again, fails to take account of his- 
tory and to see that responsible theism has always involved 
itself in this world and has always condemned any tendency 
toward angelism as an aberration. One easily recognizes Dew- 
ey's instrumentalism throughout all these reasons for reject- 
ing God. Thought is oidy an instrument for passing from 
experienced situation, full of ambiguities and lacking har- 
mony, to new situations created by human ingenuity. But the 
new situation is not discontinuous with what went before; 
its structure is fluid and always dependent on human action. 
And human actioti is not directed by fixed and immutable 
ideas but only by the memory of past experience. The Abso- 
lute can simply have no place in a fluid structure such as this, 
except to upset it and render it infiexible. In this structure, 
morality depends upon initiative and inventiveness. It is only 
a situational response to an ever-changing moral context. 
The freedom of action that tliis gives is clearly attractive, but 
it is terribly na'ive, as post-Deweyite school discipline should 
be sufficient to prove. 

Dr. \cill tells us that Dewey was successful because he told 
Americans what they wanted to hear, because he wrote in 
the mainstream of the .Xmeriian pioneering spirit which 
eschewed iraditional ways of acting in (a\or of (lining new 
paths to more practical solutions, because he wrote at the 
time of greatest social upheaval and espoused all the proper 
lit>cral and progressive measures of reform. Dewey believed 
that philoviphy arose out of the [)rol)lems of social life and 
that man should treat all problems from a social or socio- 
logical point of view. The iheisiic problem simply docs not 
arise within this coniexL^-i

Uontemporaiy atheism is characterized by two things: its 
extension over a considerable part of our globe and among 
a very large number of our contemporaries and its ab.solute 
character witliin which it attempts to proclaim the absolute 
independence of man.-* 

In his critical evaluation of diis phenomenon, Gabriel 
Marcel refuses the name of philosophical to any form of athe- 
ism that fails to make certain claims.^n He is at pains to show 
that a philosophical aUieism is not one that merely claims 
diat God is not but rather that He cannot be and that to 
affirm die existence of God involves an intrinsic contradic- 
tion. Moreover, Marcel insists, philosophical atheism has the 
added task of exposing the illusions of those who claim that 
God does exist. After all, philosophical atheism cannot re- 
main only a gratuitous negation. But when he examines the 
basis for the atheist's certitude. Marcel concludes that it can- 
not be anything in the objective order of science which pro- 
vides an esoteric instrument of discrimination. It resides only 
in the atheist's attributing to himself an intellectual lucidity 
that he denies the belie\cr. But what is the nature of this 
lucidity that die adieist claims for himself? It seems, judging 
from Dewey and the rest, to have its giound in the dispassion 
and rigor of the science laboratory where the in\esiigator 
divests himself of all but his uninvolved intellect. But the 
affirmation of God is never made on such a ground, becau.se 
the evidence for God's existence does not converge simply 
on intellect but on the whole per.son, and the response is 
ne\er that of mere intellectual assent but of total personal 
commitment. As we can easily see in reading the emotionally 
charged words of the authors studied, die antiseptic labora- 
tory that produced die atheist doctrine was more than a little 
infected with the virus of passion. That the lucidity of the 
adieist cannot be something more firmly founded than that 
of the dieist can probably be shown in another way also. If 
the conclusion of the atheist resulted from his directly per- 
ceiving diat God does not exist, then he ought to be able to 
show that die contrary proposition, "God does exist," is not 
only false but is also inconceivable. That neither the theist 
nor atheist positions are inconceivable .should be clear 
enough proof that both are the result of an inferential proc- 
ess. The atheist cannot shift ground. He must establish his 
conclusion Uiat God does not and cannot exist on the .same 
grounds wliicli the theist must use in estal)lisliiiig God's exist- 
ence. To the extent that the adieist abandons die ground of 
argument — the area of nieta]jhysics — does he not admit th:it 
his atheism is an unproved and gratuitous assumption? 

Philosophical atheism seems animated by a promethean 
spirit. As Prometheus attacked the divine realm to steal fire 
from the gods to better the condition of man, so the atheist 
storms the heavens, this time ;itlacking (iod as the enemy of 
hiiiiiaiiity ;ind, by deslroying Ilini. restoring man to his sup- 
posed rightful position of absolute selfniaslery. 

I wonder if this promethean spirit has not succeeded in 
invading the lives and ihoughi pattern of many of our con- 
temporaries who would never think of denying die exisleiKc 
of (Jiid. The nun we have sliidieil ,ire. ;ifl(r ;ill. sliapers of 
the modern mind. We may be sure lh;il we have rejetled the 
conclusions of dieir philosophies. But, I fear, we c.innot al- 
ways be so certain that we have escaped llieir inlluente. The 
materialism they preached .seems to be far more widespread 
than their atheism. f)r is it, perhaps, lli;il they are e(|ually 
widespread and the difference is only one of tlegrec.

a view that traps man and his knowing process within the 
narrow limits of the logic of the sciences. The iiitelledu.d 
climate created by these naturalists we ha\e studied li.is 
seemed, as Father IxBlond points out. to justify the |)osiiioM 
taken by the atheist: now. he can think without refeienie to 
God since all his thinking is coidined to the material world; 
because since tedinology has "desacrali/ed"' the world of nat- 
ural forces, he can live without God; and human \alues seem 
now to have iheir own justification, therefore he does not 
have to look beyond the liiunan to Clod.-" 'I'he only possible 
way to iniluence his thinking is to bring about a niela|)hysical 
conversion in the atheist's thought. .\s long as he weighs God 
in the same balance he u.ses to nuasuii lunuaii progress he 
will reject all attempts to show him ili.u (.od really exists. 
Perhaps the most effective way for tlie tluist to inllueiue the 
atheism of our times, and individual atheists, is for them to 
live their personal comiiiitment to CJod so perfectly that die 
wonder of ancient pagans — "see how they love one another" 
— might again be heard in our land and in our time. The 
atheist w-ould have no dilliculty in accepting as a (Uluiiiioii 
of "faidi" the state of ultimate concern that Paul I illiih 
speaks about.'-"* .And he would, perhaps, be mo\ed bv ilir 
sight and experience of that total personal suneiidei tli;ii 
ultimate concern demands. Faith, after all, is the central act 
that gives unity and direction to every asjiect of a person's 
life. It is that concern which transcends all individual acts 
and even the totality of all of our ad ions, bui. at ilic same 
time, it is that same "ultimate concern " ili.ii li.is lis inip.ut 
on each human act. and on :ill of tluiii. 

In conclusion, I woukl like to suggest that our .ipologetics 
to the atheistic world contain a very generous amount of posi- 
tive Christian example, llie adieist's intellect must be ilraw-n 
by clear and precise arguments. But his assent, if he is to 
make one, must also include his will and emotions. Philo- 
sophical atheism has created a paradox. While thinking to 
free man from some real and some iniagineil shackles, it has 
really iniprisoneil him by turning him in upon himself, thus 
compounding die initial human weakness with which he 
started. To bring the atheist to the recognition of CJod re- 
quires, as a first step, a restoration of man to his proper exis- 
tential position as captain of all creation, maile in God's 
image, and having for his sublime destiny an eternity of 
friendship with God in heaven. The arguments of the specu- 
lative reason will help him to make this choice of God. But 
it is the face-to-face meeting with God in the total surrender 
of our being to Him that will give us die wisdom to desire 
to make diis choice in the first place.

ALUMNAE SCHOLARSHIP FUND 

t.liKc r. Ilaruh 

The .Alumnae .Scholarship Fund is a fund 10 be drawn on 
in special cases of need for total or partial scholarshijis by 
daughters of alumnae only. It is not a scholarship regularly 
awarded. It is sup|)orted by moneys actjuired through dona- 
lions from individuals or contributions from social affairs 
such as alumnae bridges, dances, and theatre parties. 

.\t ihc present time, the .Mumnae Scholarship is advancing 
ihe education of nine alumnae tl.iughters. The first grant was 
made in 1955. Fifteen students have received this special 
grant: 10 received partial support, live were granted full 
scholarships. The total amount expended to .September 1964

CLASS NOTES 



1920 

Fifty yearsi I'm sure not one of die twelve "innocents" who 
entered the newly born S.J.C. in 1916 dreamed of being here 
for the beginning of this year of joyous celebration. It was 
enough to look forward with trepidation to tlie successful 
completion of the four years and the bestowal of the B.A. 
Fifty years, then an unbelievable span of time, now seems to 
us only the "blink of an eye." The progress made in recent 
years is truly a cause not only for prayerful gratitude but also 
humble petition for .Alma Mater's future welfare • The 
members of the Class of '20 keep in close touch while occu- 
pying themselves with charitable and social activities. Most 
of us have retired, but Constance Doyle is in the business 
world and .Annunciata Scibilia .Anderson is teaching in Hunt- 
ington. VVe take pride in the presence of Amalia Simonetti, 
M.D., at the Mass celebrated on October 4 by His Holiness, 
Pope Paid IV. .Amalia was honored two years ago by being 
named to the Order of the Holy Sepulchre. Recently she was 
raised to the dignity of Lady of the Grand Cross of the Holy 
Sepulchre of Jerusalem in recognition of her continuing char- 
itable endeavors • VVe hold in affectionate prayerful remem- 
brance not only our five cla.ssmates who have been called to 
their eternal reward but also the bishop.s, priests, religious, 
and lay professors, both living and deceased, who by their 
devotion and dedication lia\e nurtured ihc dream of Bishop 
McDonnell: "May God continue to bless and prosper every 
endeavor of S.J.C." This is the prayer of the Class of 1920 • 
Mac Moore Waldorf and Sister Joan de Lourdes met aboard 
the S.S. United States in .September, and Sister Joan appre- 
ciated the help .Mae and her husband also gave her in Eng- 
land. They put her on the train to Stanmore safely — Marie 
McConnell 

1921 

i he unportant news of '21 is that Eli/abelli Hill '61, d.iugli- 
ter of Grace Byrne Hill .ind niece of Sister .\I. Geraldine, 
entered the Novitiate of St. Joseph's. Breiilwood, on Septem- 
ber 3. The Hills, C;rate, Harry, and Elizabeth spent three 
weeks in Ireland and England during .August • Allhougli 
'21 had no class reunion in '65, members of the class did meet 
in far-off places. Eleanor Howard (J'Leary visited Sister Om- 
lucla .Marie (.Mildred Duffy) at Cornwell Heights. Pa. (irace 
Reynolds visited firate Byrne Hill in .Alford. .Mass., Helen 
Cimpbell in VV'asliitigton, D.C;., and Florence Newman in 
C;oti(ord, N.Y. — (irace A. Keynolils

-Amy Bonnet is planning an extensi\e tour of Europe next

as much fun as realization • Cecile Cassidy, our amateur

ian and loves it • Gertrude Delwordi and her husband. Lee,

just retired as the superintendent of Havcrstraw's schools. 
Now they are free to travel and do many other things they

dren and a daughter college grailuate, Debby • Hortense 
McGrevy is still teaching mathematics at Bryant biu her ac- 
tivities have been curtailed lately by (he illness of her sister, 
Marie • Charlotte Nolan Maiming continues her interesting

(juently • Margaret Leniion Martin heltl a class reunion at

Bridgeport Diocese • Mary Sheridan Nolan and her hus- 
band. Bill, finished their trip around the world which was 
interrupted by the sail loss of her sister, (ienevieve. Class of

It's next to being there. We're all wailing to hear where the

I Ik- Class of '2() is pre|)aring for a forlieth aimi\ersary re-

Our thirty-fifth reunion luncheon was held at the Garden 
City Hotel on .April 3. Our chairman. Dot Hanagan Griffin, 
did a superbly efhcient job: she even went to the Rockville M 
Centre (;li:incery Oflice and obtained a clispeiis;ition from 
fast and ;ibstineiice. Bulletin boards were set ii|) on easels 
and displayed a collection of |)riceless pictures. Surprisingly, 
those late twenties fashions were not as hysterical as they were 
fi\e years ago. 'I'hat old saying. "Keep things long enough 
and they'll return to fashion," seems to be frighteningly true. 
We asked for snapshots of offspring — or relatives — or any 
cherished possession — and almost everyone cooperated. .A 
gentle reminder to those who will be attending reunions of il 
slightly earlier years: don't forget your glasses! • We had 
33 reservations out of a possible 46, which should certainly 
indicate that the CHass of '30 remains an exceptional one. 
Dot Bird Daly flew up from AVashington and .Agnes Kenny 
Neugcni flew down from Svracuse. Jo Eppig Fisher and Nfary 
Miner 0'H:illor:in stayed on Long IsKiiul for a few days and 
caught up with relatives and friends. Belly Blake Campbell

soon be regular members of our alumnae • We were particu- 
larly saddened by the news of Kay McNeely McMullen's 
death. She had attended our reunion and was stricken just 
about a month later • Helen Bradley Eppig's identical twin 
granddaughters were born shortly after our reunion. Their 
father. Carl Eppig. is a lieutenant in the .Air Force and is 
stationed in Toul. France, where the twins entered this

"Should old III tjuititilaiKr he forpol. . . ." The C;lass of '65 
has covered a great deal of mileage since June: crossing the 
.Atlantic, .Adriatic, (iulf of .Mexico, and (Jreal Lakes, not to 
mention crossing over the bridal threshhold. Sixty of us are 
teaching on the |>reschool, nursery and elementary levels; 
.SO are engaged in high-sihool teaching: four are college in- 
structors and teaching assistants; six are social workers: and 
nine are emj)loyed in the fields of insurance, advertising, pub- 
lishing, and research. As of this issue of the Altimnagjam , 
22 have married and engagements total 25. Seven are study- 
ing full time for master antl doctoral degrees. Three of us

all, M..A.?) • The soul of a journey is liberty, perfect liberty, 
to think, feel and do ns one pleases: With this philosophy in 
mind, suitcase in hands and inoculations bursting out all 
over, several classmates took off for "those faraway places." 
Traveling to Europe for three weeks were Margie Smidi,

MORE CHAPTERS FOR BROOKLYN 
AND OUEENS ALUMNAE? 

Several alumnae who live in Brooklyn have expressed in- 
terest in forming their own local chapters, similar to the one 
in Bay Ridge. Others who live in South Queens have also 
mentioned that they would like to get together officially for 
the benefit of the College. 

The Executive Board of the .Alumnae Association will be 
happy to authorize new chapters. If you are interested, please 
write Miss Suzanne Trinneer, President, Alumnae Associa- 
tion, St. Joseph's College for Women, Brooklyn, N.Y. 11205, 
designating the area (Flatbush, Park Slope, South Queens! 
etc.) in which you would like to see a chapter formed. 



NEW JERSEY ALUMNAE-ATTENTION, PLEASE 



So many of you who now live in the Garden State have 
expressed an interest in becoming more active in the Alum- 
nae .-Association, the Executive Board has suggested that you 
be given the opportunity to form new chapters. The Board 
has realized for some time that one chapter is not adequate 
for such a large state. .Mary Kane Gillen, chairman of the 
single present .New Jersey Chapter and ex-officio Board mem- 
ber, has supplied the following breakdown of New Jersey 
cities and towns into four geographically close areas. 

If you are interested in forming or joining a local chapter 
in one of the areas as grouped please write Mi.ss Suzanne 
Trinneer, President, Alumnae Association, St. Joseph's Col- 
lege for Women. Brooklyn, N.Y. 1 1205, designating the area 
chapter you wish to be associated with. You may specify an 
area other than the one in which your city or town is listed 
if the other area would be more convenient for you. Only 
two or three meetings annually are planned for each new 
chapter so that even if your total travel time were to add up 
to more than an hour, you could plan to attend these few 
meetings without great hardship and look forward to renew- 
ing old friendships too, probably.

after m.iiiy ye.irs of serv ice to the (College, to iheir class, and

.Margaret, particularly, has done yeoman work. While - 
an undergraduate, she was the first editor of Alumiiaiii 
before it had its present name or separate identity. Stie wiua 
and edited ".Mumnae News" for the first issues of l.oria in

DR. MARY HUSCHLE RETIRES 




Dr. Mary Huschle, chairman of ihe social science depart- 
ment of St. Joseph's, retired in February. The College noted 
her retirement with this tribute: "Loyal alumna, dedicated 
teacher, lawyer, .Member of die Bar, Dr. Huschle leaves be- 
hind memories of long and devoted service to her Alma 
Maier and unswerving interest and fidelity to the higlusi 
uatidards. .She expected much from her students in hard 
work and in concentrated attention to the detail as well as 
to the broad interpretations of law and government; she 
inspired in them, esjiecially the history majors, a dee]) respen 
ind a (|uickened interest in the fascination ol go\(innKiit 
an national and local levels. 13r. Huschle's selfless (knoiion 
lo her classes for over a fjuarter of a century and her imi 
jcientious, equable, judicious, and kindly association wiili 
ooih students and faculty on many committees and projcds 
will be missed. We Irjok forward to her fre<)uent rclunis lo 
|Sl Joseph's both as an almnna and as a \alued friend and 
bonfri-re." 



I\LUMNAE REUNION DAY 

The hrsl .Mumnae Reunion Day was lieid at llie college on 

Vfay 21. C;laire .Arnold Ficarra and Betty F-farkin were co- 

hairmen. Right Reverend .Monsignor Raymond S. Leonard 

clebraled .Mass in llie College chapel. Following the bullet 

f ''">n in .MiKniegari Hall, (lie anniversary classes separ- 

. assigned areas lo gel logelher informally. 

■ I VifKcni I h(f-rese gave ihe alumnae present an in- 

oiinal ripori on ihe "Stale ol ilic C>>lligc," Iik lulling a 



number of enlightening financial facts of academic life; she 
also related some of the insightful humorous experiences she 
had had recently in her particular role as president. 

GOLDEN JUBILEE BANQUET 

A banquet will be hekl on October 3, the final celebration 
of St. Joseph's Golden Jubilee Year, at the Hotel Waldorf- 
Astoria. Right Reverend Monsignor Charles E. Diviney, 
V.G., is honorary chairman. Mr. Frank Murphy, father of 
Clare Murphy '65, is chainiian. Reverend Robert I. Gannon, 
SJ, former president of Fordham University, will be the 
guest speaker. The donation is .§25.00. 

NO MORE CLASS REUNIONS? 

Because of the diHiculty in meeting all the requests of the 
anniversary classes to pro\ ide a guest speaker from the Col- 
lege and of organizing the other details of the individual 
class reunions, the Executive Board voted to combine these 
celebrations with the general Alumnae Reunion Day. 

This does not mean that an anniversary class may not hold 
its own reunion separately, of course. Your class agent is re- 
sponsible for this activity insofar as she must appoint the 
chairman. She may either request a classmate to serve or 
approve one who has volunteered. You should not be so re- 
tiring: your class agent often has difficulty in finding some- 
one who is both willing and available. If you have any other 
ideas also about organizing this program — and you all do — 
please let your class agent know aliout them. (You may have 
ideas also for future .Mumnae Reunion Day programs. Your 
class agent will be happy to hear them.) 

Different classes have different traditions; for instance, 
some classes have always turned to their .Senior Class presi- 
dent while others have relied on their class agent to organize 
their reunion. Whatever your tradition, please inform your 
class agent and you will not encounter this problem: recently 
two enthusiastic grou|)s in one class had each made extensive 
plans for a reunion; luckily the class agent discovered the 
conflict in time and was able to resolve it and thus .serve the 
whole class.

Reprinted from LORIA-COUNTERPOINT 



Here are some stories, poems, and essays from forty -five 
years of Loria and its successor, Counterpoint, we enjoyed 
reading.* You too may find at least a few of them engaging. 
We think you will find them significant for today or of con- 
tinuing interest or, simply, entertaining. 

In the fall of 1924 Anna McDonald set a standard for all 
who followed her as editor of Loria-Counterpoint. She wrote, 
in part, "Its standard demands material that is true, interest- 
ing, fair, and courteous" (II, No. 1, 14). Her standard was 
ours too for the selections below. 

Marion H. Toshack '30 wrote the first story for Loria about 
a "Saturday Only" experience. Were you one too? (VII, No. 3, 
22-25) 



Saturday Girl 



Jane glanced at her watch and gasped. She tore down the 
steps, banged out the door marked "Employees Only," and 
ran through the bakery. Then she turned to the right and 
dashed up three steps to the main floor. Cash registers rang, 
salesgirls dashed in and out between counters. Jane pushed 
on until she came to an escalator. Two minutes later she was 
scrawling something on a finger-marked timesheet. She flung 
down the yellow stub and ran into the stockroom. No one 
was there. She closed the door, opened her purse, and took 
out two crumpled dollar bills and a pencil. She smoothed out 
the bills and folded them and placed them in tlie sole of her 
shoe. Then she stuck the pencil through the little "bun" at 
the nape of her neck and threw her purse into a broken-edged 
cardboard box in the corner of the room. 

Someone shouted, "S-105! S-I05I" The door opened, admit- 
ting a whiff of cheap perfume and a short fleshy figure in a 
tight brown dress. 

"Oh, here you are," she chirped as she flung an armful of 
hangers on the floor. "Hurry up out. You're late. Got about 
five or six customers out there now." 

Jane obeyed. The brown figure followed her and caught 
her arm. "There's a quick sale," she said, pointing to a tall 
angular woman in a shriveled muskrat coat. 

"May I help you, madam?" The woman looked up. Her 
face was young, but thin, drawn and pale. Her crimson lips 
drooped. There were dark circles under her eyes. 

"Yeah," she said, as she took two dresses from the "Special 
— $16.75" rack. "Here's where I bust the bankroll." 

Jane led the way for a dressing room. "Think I'll tackle the 
green foist. Always looked good in green." She stepped out of 
her short, faded dress and threw it on the chair. As Jane 
(lipped the desired dress over her head, the woman con- 
tinued, "Gee, don'tcha love these long skoits? No kiddin', 
they look swell! Huh? No, I'm useta them now." 

"Isn't that sweet? Why that's perfectly stunning on you," 
Jane gushed. "Just look at those lines in the back. Aren't they 
smart?" 

The woman looked at Jane. "Say, li.sscn dearie, cut the 
lalcj line, will ya? Y'know I woikcd in a store onct myself. 
Klein's." She examined herself in the mirror. "Not such a bad 
rag at that." She stepped forward, took two steps backward, 
and then pivoted slowly.

"Like it? Huh, it's a sale, dearie." 

Jane's mouth opened. Her eyes widened. "But wouldn't 
you care to — that is — <lont you want to — ?" 

"What for? Waste your time and mine? I like this. See? 
And I can't like two in the same day. Get me?" 

Jane waited at the wrapping desk. Someone tapped her 
shoulder. She swung around. 

"Step on it, sister. In just about ten minutes I gotta plug 
in." 

Jane counted the change into a skinny hand. The woman 
tucked the small brown box under one arm. 

"Good luck, dearie," she called as she slouched away, her 
shoulders drooping, but her head up. 

"No, madam, that isn't too snug. Now, turn this way. 
There, do you see what I mean? Why, that's a perfectly 
straight line." 

A heavily built but extremely smart young matron in a 
willowly black chiffon studied herself critically. 

"No," she shook her head, "I'm afraid I couldn't wear 
that." 

"Well, how about this, a little double-date frock?" Jane 
held up a duplicate of the dress that had been purchased that 
morning by the woman in the shriveled muskrat. 

The young matron laughed and turned to the gray-haired 
woman who sat very straight on the edge of her chair. 

"What do you think, mother?" The older woman raised a 
lorgnette. 

"Ridiculous little thing, isn't it? Looks like Flatbush Ave- 
nue. 17.95." 

"It's a wonderful piece of silk, madam," Jane ventured, 
offering the garment for the older woman's inspection. 

"Yes, yes, of course, we understand all that. Come, Doro- 
thy, don't waste any more time." 

"Just a moment, madam," Jane half pleaded. She pushed 
through the curtain and hurried to the stock room. 

"Miss Blumbergl" 

"Yes? Here I am." The short, fleshy figure in the tight 
brown dress emerged from somewhere behind a rack of 
dresses. 

"I'm stumped," Jane said simply. 

"Lead the way," cliirped Miss Blumberg, polishing her red 
nails on her sleeve. "We can't afford any walkouts today." 

"This is the buyer," Jane explained, ushering Miss Blum- 
berg into the room. 

The young matron had her hat and coat on. She was pow- 
dering her nose in the mirror. The gray-haired woman had 
risen and was pulling on her gloves. Miss Blumberg tilted her 
chin, raised her eyebrows, and placed one hand on a broad 
hip. 

"What can I do for modom?" 

"Nothing, we're afraid," answered the mother in a quiet 
tone, "{^ome, Dorothy, we'll try elsewhere." 

"But modom — I . . ." wailed Miss Blinnberg. 

In a moment she was herself again. She turned to Jane. 

"Can you beat that? Well." she sighed, "get those dresses 
out on the racks, and listen, the next time choose your cus- 
tomer more carefully." 

Five customers (but only three sales) later, Jane was sui>- 
porting herself against a display case. Her feet throbbed, and 
her back ached. Her eyei traveled to the clock. Fifteen min- 
ute» more of miscryl 



e 



"Quit star-gazin' (karic, and get to work at these." A sales- 
girl liaiulecl her an armful of dresses. Jane shullled ihem nie- 
dianically. She put "sixtcens" on one rack, "fourteens" on 
another. She pulled a red chilfon out here and stuck a green 
crepe in there. Miss Blumberg breezed by. 

"Stock tonight, girls," slie chirped glceluUy. "Everyone on 
hand to take stock." 

The room buzzed. Some muttered under their breath, 
others laughed sarcastically, and one, a short, fat Jewish girl, 
made a face at the buyer behind her back. A few boldly de- 
clared themselves. 

"What's the idea, takin' stock on Saturday night?" 

"Well, she won't get me to stay. I gotta heavy." 

".■\w, pipe down. Vou did a fade-out last week." 

"I pulled a hundred and fifty today and I'll be darned if I 
do overtime." 

The gong rang. Miss Blumberg sang out, "Clear the racksl 
Pencils and papers ready!" 

A tall, lanky peroxide blonde approached Jane. 

"Did you hc.ir the bugle call? A dame with a nerve like that 
oughta be shotl" 

Jane sighed and shifted from one foot to tlie other. 

"Gee, kid, you're dead!" The girl lowered her voice and 
moved closer. "It's a shame," she began bitterly, "Blumbcrg'U 
pull the trigger on Saturdays now just 'cause you extras are 
on. An' you're not supposed to take stock, y'know." 

"So that's the game! Well, as far as I'm concerned, it isn't 
going to work." Jane disappeared into the stockroom. Two 
minutes later she was rushing toward the escalator. 

"S-105! S-105!" Miss Blumberg screamed after her. 

Jane let her scream.

she knew. (X, No. 2, 11-13) 



Greenwich Village 



Greenwidi Village, for me, represents glamour, adventure, 
the touch of beauty that makes a humdrum, monotonous ex- 
istence livable. My love for the place is, I suppose, rather sen- 
timental; but it is sentiment based on something more than 
mere idealization. It is based on pleasant memories and asso- 
ciations. 

I was born in a shabby but comfortable little studio apart- 
ment on Twelfth Street, and when I was only a few months 
old, my family moved to the "house with the brass railings" 
on Barrow Street. It was there that I experienced my first 
"real" adventure. One day, at the age of four, I had a pro- 
found desire to see the world, unaided by the dear aunt who 
acted as my constant chaperone. Accordingly, I cautiously 
stole my way down to the front door and then down the steps. 
I stood there, staring with wide, frightened eyes at the noisy, 
playful people about me. After a scant minute, an elderly 
gentleman passing by greeted me with a cheerful, "Good 
morning, little girl." I took one terrified look at his large, 
smiling face, his glistening teeth — then up. up I scrambled, 
fearing that every step woidd be my last. That pleasant but 
terrifying face haunted me every step of my climb till I had 
reached the door, slammed it behind me, and thrown myself 
weeping wildly into my grandmother's arms. It was the last 
time I ever ventured alone to the door of the "house with the 
brass railings." 

My days were spent shopping with Grandma and philoso- 
phizing from my third-story window, but my evenings were 
quite different. In the evening, Mommie and Aunty came 



back from work. We ate supper quickly, and tlien one or 
both of them would take me to Washington Sfpiare Park. 
These e\tnings gave me great joy, for they meant playing 
and laughing witli diildren of my own age. They meant con- 
ceding to the more aggressive of my park playmates and de- 
lightfully patronizing the younger children from my two or 
tliree monUis' age advantage. When there were no chil- 
dren to play with. I would kneel, entranced, at the edge of 
the great splashing fountain. It was a source of great wonder 
to me that the fountain played all night as well as all day, 
for at night, it had no one to watch it. On clear, cold winter 
nights, the stars would shimmer and dance in the splashing 
waters, and every little ripple too would catch and reflect the 
gleam of the tiny, crystal-like stars. Sometimes Mommie and 
I would take long walks along the queer, crooked little streets 
in the very center of the artists' quarter. 1 would gasp and 
laugh with delight at the odd little stone houses widi the red 
geranium pots on their window sills. 

The villagers who constituted this Greenwich Village of 
mine were not the traditional madcap Bohemians; they were 
merely friendly, informal people, lovers of the arts and of the 
aesthetic. The most beautiful memory I cherish of my child- 
hood friends is that of the incomparable Sonya, after whom 
I have been nicknamed because of my love for her. Sonya 
was the owner of my small fairyland — a little shop where 
were to be found little square boxes with silver dragons 
writhing on the covers, long, carved, jade cigarette-holders, 
large, round, amber beads in long strands, mysterious, em- 
broidered black satin tapestries, ivory fans with delicate 
dancing figures painted on them, tiny statuettes of baccha- 
nalian dancers, little odd medals of all denominations, and 
many trinkets from old Cathay. Sonya, herself, was exquisite- 
ly beautiful. She had a pointed, pale face, with large, clear, 
amber eyes, vividly carmine lips, a high white forehead, a 
long slender throat, and hair that seemed alive — it was so 
curly and black and lustrous, a gorgeous black aurora atop 
her beautifully poised head. I never could discover exactly 
who she was. I knew that she painted, for I had seen her 
doing so. She was probably Hungarian, or Russian — surely 
something romantic. I have made many conjectures about 
her. and I often wondered if perhaps she had been a Russian 
princess forced to flee from her ancestral home because of 
the fury of the revolutionists. I heard, years after we had 
moved, that Sonya had died of consumption — like other great 
artists. 

After we had moved from the "house of the brass railings" 
to common, ordinary, ugly, old Brooklyn, I used to look for- 
ward to the monthly visits I paid my aunt in Greenwich Vil- 
lage. During these visits I would walk along familiar streets, 
lose myself in crooked, cozy little alleys, press my nose against 
the windows of trinket shops, nod at smiling faces, and expe- 
rience the satisfying feeling of being "home" again. But then 
my aunt bought a house in the Bronx and left my beloved 
Greenwich Village too. ( 

It is now several years since I have visited the Village as I 
one bearing the magic key of kinship, ^^y last few visits were j 
too reminiscent to be thoroughly enjoyable. They were like | 
visiting a desecrated shrine. I walked the same pavements, I 
trod the same cobblestones, but there were little differences ' 
that wrung my heart. I caught tlie fountain unaware, in a 
mood as dejected as my own. It was dry and had forgotten 
the myriads of stars in the heavens. The brass railings are 
gone from my house on Barrow Street. The stable of the jolly 
red-haired man across the street has been closed up, and a 
small swinging sign informs one that "Ye Olde Forge" is to be 



10 



found within. Greatest sacrilege of all — Sonya's and my tiny 
shop of Cathay has been converted into a hand laundry. The 
streets are no longer quiet. They are filled with intruders, 
with interlopers, the hoi-polloi which seeks to amuse itself 
at the cost of die more serious. The old Villagers are seeking 
new quarters. \Vhere they are moving, if they are moving, I 
have yet to find. 

Perhaps my Greenwich Village is a mythical one — a village 
that never really existed, one that sprang from a few realities 
and a child's imagination. To me, the Village was a quiet, 
quaint little oasis of harmony, of beauty, of individuality in 
a desert of sand mounds of identical shapes with tiny incon- 
sequential ants moving in and out of them. When I want 
rest from reality, my mind automatically turns to contempla- 
tion of the Village with its congenial, informal inliabitants, 
people whose lives were just a little bit different, a little bit 
more interesting than those of ordinai-y people. Even if I can 
never find the exact location of my Village, it will always be 
my most cherished memory. To my mind, it will always be 
the personification of the whimsical, aestlietic, bizarre.

Moipae 

Mary eyed the tapestry balefully. Queer, how it obsessed herl 
But it was a queer thing to ha\e in a classroom, even a class- 
room in an old Greek villa. But the tapestry was not Greek. 
It had none of the chaste austerity of Greek art; it was, in 
fact, rather gaudy. Gaudy, that is, in background; the three 
women, plain, pale, middle-aged, clad in depressing black 
robes, were sober enough. They were the Three Fates: Clotho 
with her spindle, Atropos with thin worn hands clutching 
the thread, Lachesis with the shears. 

How it had gotten there, no one pretended to know; but 
there it was. And it annoyed Mary exceedingly. She fancied 
she felt the eyes of the Fates boring into her back as she 
worked in that room. And when she was alone there she was 
sure, sure, that behind her back they moved and rustled and 
whispered. It had come to the point where she would wheel 
suddenly about, trying to catch them in the act, to see them 
moving. Sometimes she almost thought she had succeeded. 

She turned away to her books. She cast a suspicious glance 
at the three black figures that stared unmoving back at her 
and walked to the door. A slight rustle seemed to follow her 
through it — the very faintest suggestion of a sound. Fooll 
Fool! she scoffed. It was the wind shaking the tapestryl But 
there was no wind. 

Another little rustle. With a scornful exclamation of im- 
patience and anger she ran to the door and wrenched it open. 
There was the end of a trailing black skirt dragging out of 
the farther door, the door to the left of the tapestry. Only 
two black figures remained against its gaudiness. The other — 

"Lachesis! Lachesis!" shrieked the girl as she raced tiiroiigh 
the classroom, flung another glance at the two still figures on 
the tapestry, and flew up the stairs. "Lachesis! Give me that!" 
She sprang at the tall black figure with the shears in its claw- 
like hand, and snatched at the tangle of gray yarn. A frail 
itrand of the stuff snapped. 

Dorothy Duffy '36 reveals her weakness also. It's one of ours 
too — even an editor can be biased, unfortunately. (XI, No. 
I, D-J-t) 



September Jag 



At the beginning of every September semester I go on a 
debauch and the carefully saved copper and silver of die sum- 
mer (for one cannot easily spend money three miles from die 
nearest village and nine from die nearest town) melts away. 
Over die hum of die big city, the rattle of elevated trains, 
the tapping of many feet, the pleadings of splendid young 
theater ushers in admirals' full dress uniforms, the stentorian 
tones of a perspiring cop bawling out a recalcitrant taxi 
driver, comes a luring siren call. In response to it 1 pass under 
the red portals of Woolwortli's or Kresge's and drift slowly 
to the stationery department. 

There it is, its counters loaded with the sinews of war and 
the necessities of peace. (Does anyone think a session is not 
a battle and a semester a campaign?) 

Those pads of white and yellow paper, plain and lined, 
those packages of catalog and index cards, draw me like a 
magnet. I drift helplessly over to inspect, to hesitate, and 
finally to purchase. The stiff red envelopes of various sizes, 
the little boxes of pen nibs, the delectable bundles of rubber 
bands, each bound in the middle like so many bunches of 
faggots, the erasers, red or black and white or soap yellow, 
the neat layers of long, slick lead pencils, yellow, red, gieen- 
ish-black — for me all these better the treasures of Aladdin's 
cave. And the pastes and tapes, the boxes of shiny clips and 
the boxes of little white gummed circles, the colored inks, 
and the little rolls of transparent tape for mending books — 
they leave me rapt and speechless with ecstasy, and a shrewd 
salesgirl takes full advantage of it. I spend all my money, 
cart my spoils carefully home, and arrange them lovingly in 
the drawers and pigeonholes of my desk. 

I wonder why I take such delight in this procedure. It 
isn't diat I put my gains to such excellent use — I don't. Per- 
haps this annual jag is the harbinger of autumn as the 
swallow is of spring. Or perhaps it is merely the outlook for 
the mental exhilaration produced by sight of concrete pave- 
ments and the Williamsburg clock after two and a half 
mondis of rustic bliss. Whatever the reason, it takes place 
as surely as the leaves turn russet and orange and the summer 
freckles fade. 

It is a curious fact that, no matter how much I buy one 
September, there is never anything left by next September, 
and I must lay in a whole new supply. 

I thought tiiis craze for the stationery counter was a purely 
personal weakness, but the other night I discovered diat it 
runs in the family. My Aunt Helen confessed to it also. We 
wonder if it is a symptom of meritorious studious tastes, or 
merely of spendthrift habits. No matter, I shall probably go 
on investing my substance in paper and catalog cards and 
clips. And I see no reason why I shouldn't. There arc worse 
vices.

Lulu's Lapses or I Lived This Story 

(Reprinted from Splintered Heart'i Quarterly) 

VOLUME I: Pasaion Flower 

Eternity was her name, elernity was in her eyes, but her 
friends called her Lulu. Her hair was the yellow of ripe 



pears, her eyes blue as Concord grapes, her raoiah like the 
inside of a pomegranate — a fruity gal. Gus was a nice clean- 
cut fella. Married at twenty, Gus looked forward to their 
golden wedding anniversary. Was this life? Home every eve- 
ning reading a book before the gas logs. How lucky she was! 
He'll never run after other women! Lulu clenched her hands 
till the knuckles poked through the skin. How dull, how 
maddeningly dull he was! Now he's going to try poetry on 
mel 

"Listen to this, sweetie-pic: 
down in the wine vault underneath the city 
two old men were sitting they were drinking booze 
torn were tlieir garments hair and beards were gritty 
one had an overcoat but hardly any shoes. 
"It goes on like that, but here's the tear-jerker. This'll 
slay you: 

in came a little tot for to kiss her granny 
such a little tot she could scarcely tottle 
saying Kiss me grandpa kiss your little nanny 
but the old man beancd her widi a whisky bottle." 
Lulu's soul shriveled up like a dried apple at his raucous 
laugh. Seizing bib and tucker, she dashed out into the snow. 



VOLUME U: Smoke Gets in Your Eyes 

"I'm just a little tot, but I could go far with tlie right 
management," she reflected as she staggered through the 
drifts. Pausing for a moment, for breath, she dung to a lamp 
post. But it wasn't a lamp post. It was a City Slicker. 

"Heh, heh, heh." 

"Wrong again. That comes in the last chapter." 

"Sorry. The clutch did it. They always clutch me when I'm 
foreclosing on the mortgage. Wilt tread a measure in some 
den of vice?" 

"Sewer of iniquity to you. But you're taking a chance. The 
last man went home on crutches." 

"I should worry about a broken leg. Pavlova was nothing 
in my life. Carry on!" 

Up and down 
Up and down 
Up and down 

Dull fella, Gus. Bright people would go up and down, 
across, down and up. 

"Lulu! Where've you been? What happened to you? I've 
been going nuts! How could you do such a thing to me?" 

" 1 did it unconscious." 



VOLUME III: The Demon Rum 

"What? Gallivanting around town! Tsk, tsk! Not home 
scraping carrots for hubbie's heavenly stew?" 

"Cornelius! You here? What a small world!" 

"Don't try too hard. Beautiful. Wouldst gasp a snifter?" 

"Well " 

"Very well. Taxi! Alastor Bar!" Clink, swish, tinkle. "I saw 
stars, I heard a birdie sing . . . ." 

"Pink Lady for this scarlet woman, George!" 

Home again, home again, jiggcdy jig. 

"AVhy, Gussie! The very ideeeeal I am not! HELP! Vou're 
murdering me!" Bump, bump, bump, bump, thud. "'Woe is 
mel woe, woe, woe, woe, whoa tliere Napoleon, I'm coming 
too!" 



Snow, snow, snow, SNOW — nothing but snow and ice and 
frozen streets and ghosts of empty houses. Time stands still — 
waves of eternity roll over my tired feet, laving them in com- 
fort, washing them in peace. Once again tlie clank of macli- 
incry announces the awakening of gray matter. Business 
at the old stand — aha!! So he would cast me oil like an old 
shoe! Thrown aside like a sucked orange — . . . dot, dot, dot. 
Veow! A scrawny cat made one tremendous leap out of my 
path, abandoning a juicy garbage pail. I stoml rooted to the 
sidewalk, an icy hand squeezed my heart, my breath came in 
short pants. Was it blazoned on my forehead? Was I "that 
sort of woman"? Violent shudders tore me apart from head 
to foot. My slender frame heaved with heartbroken sobs. My 
childish lips quivered with the agony of my grief. I must 
think, cogitate, ponder — thoughtfully I sat down in the snow 
and considered the Categorical Imperative. 



VOLUME IV: J'y Suis, J'y Reste 

When a woman ponders the imponderables — eh, bien! il 
faut prendre son bien oil on le trouve. But what about my 
soul, bruised black and blue; what about my lacerated feel- 
ings — a bucket of der Selbst Verneinung der willen will never 
wash that away. Tenderly I took out my soul and examined 
it. Yes, there it was, one, indivisible, immortal, stippled with 
Weltschmerz, sodden with Sturm und Drang. Then I gazed 
with mingled emotions as the freezing air gradually trans- 
formed the limp tissue paper of it into starched chiffon. 
Eureka! The riddle of the universe solved, ten thousand 
aching hearts at rest this very night. This night? This very 
instant! A passing policeman paused for a curious glance at 
the snow maiden of Broadway. Lulu bit her lip and relaxed 
into a snowdrift. 

Reader, be tolerant. L'amour est un tyTan qui n'dpargne 
personne. Eternity herself could not get off the horns of this 
dilenmaa. And there she was in a snow bed. 

Figurez-vous — she had made her bed; let her lie on it. 

Figurez-vous — this was no bed of orcliids. 

Figiu^ez-vous — the tough time I'm having getting the hero- 
ine out of a snowdrift. 



VOLUME V: The Wages of Sin 

Crash went her illusions! A familiar footstep greeted her 
ear as Gus tripped over a matchstick. 

"Why, Lulu! My little honeybun! It's a good thing I fell 
among you. Here's your glasses. You left them on the radia- 
tor." j 

"Thanks. I needed them. What's new in Wheatinaville?" 

"You must have heard the joke on Mabel! She fell down- 
stairs and swallowed her glass eyel" 

"No! Not Mabel! That reminds me — have you had your 
teeth fixed?" 

"Gussie's little crumbcake would think of thati" 

She knit her brow. So! he still tliinks of me as his toy, his 
chattel. 

She curled her nose with disdain, but alas! the iron was too 
hot. Alas! alas! the face in the glass! The face the face the 
glass the glass the nose — back to your knitting, wench! 

"Do I get my trip to Bermuda?" 

"Bad for your soul. How long would that stiffening last 
there? No artificial preservatives for souls. Nfabel's best beau 
gave me their passes for "While Millions Boo.' Must I get me 
a blonde?" 



12 



"Gussiel You know I always loved you besti I just wanted 
to make you jealous. Hand me my fan." 

Thrilling with joy she sprang up out of tlie snow. Four 
hours of pondering were too much for the old carcass. A 
sharp creak, a musical tinkle, and a thousand million slivers 
of ice lay scattered on the frozen ground. Wanton moon- 
beams glittered fitfully over the jewel-like fragments. A stiff 
flag of chiffon ensnared a ray in its folds.

hood. (XII [a], No. 3, 27) 

My Mardi Gras 

Every summer we went to a place called Breezy Point. There, 
for two halcyon months we lived untrammeled lives. Civi- 
lized society intruded its demands only on Sunday morning 
when, hatted, gloved, and shod, we wriggled and squirmed 
through a hot hour of church. This hour was the only touch 
of restraint in a child's paradise of busy freedom, and when 
September signaled summer's end with a schoolbell we left 
the beach with gloom in our hearts. But if the end of summer 
brought the beginning of school it also brought a compensa- 
tion in the Mardi Gras, the beautiful, thrilling Mardi Gras. 

The whole month of August was given over to a hotly 
contested election for the places of King and Queen of the 
festival. The coronation always took place the night before 
the parade, which was the climax of the Mardi Gras. It was 
a grand affair, held at Kennedy's Casino and attended in 
fancy dress. Needless to say, we were not among those pres- 
ent; at least we were not present inside the Casino. The small- 
fry hung about before the main entrance and heaved sighs 
of admiration and en\7 at the sight of every ruffled and full- 
skirted lady and sword-carrying gentleman. 

The next morning brought the parade that was eagerly 
awaited for two whole hours before it came into sight. The 
King and Queen looked magnificent, if uncomfortable, in 
red velvet and ermine. The courtiers, disappointed con- 
tenders in the election, smiled and tried to look more regal 
than the King and Queen just to show you how much better 
they would have done it had they been elected. One unfor- 
gettable year the parade boasted a band of cannibals. This 
band was made up of the mad wags of the resort who dressed 
themselves in battered high hats, unwholesome looking 
brown tights, grass skirts, and, as a crowning touch, baseball 
gloves fastened to their feet. The effect was startling. It com- 
pletely overpowered my younger brother who fled to the 
protection of my mother's skirts and buried his head in their 
folds to shut out the horrible sight. He was not a solitary 
victim of fright — nearly every very small spectator showed 
unmistakable symptoms of terror. The cannibals were con- 
sidered an unqualified success, except for a few mothers who 
had to get up from warm beds that night and quiet several 
small nightmare sufferers. 

They still have the parade at Breezy Point but I should 
hale to see it again. Now I would notice that the velvet is 
velveteen, the ermine, well, not ermine, the golden crowns 
merely gilded metal, and I don't want to! I want to keep it 
thrilling and beautiful as it was twelve short years ago.

To a Professor 



You're over-scrupulous with marks; 
You shouldn't be, you know. 
One really wonders what this is — 
At every breath you spring a quiz. 
And when we try to get a stay 
You fetch your dignity and say 
In your most aggravating way, 
"I told you so." 

But when Saint Peter says, "Look here, 

I have you marked for every tear 

A student shed, and for each tear 

You'll answer quizzes for a year — 

Now SIT RIGHT HERE!" 

A-a-ah, then you'll see 

How haughty can a student be 

When she says condescendingly, 

"I told you so!"

On Teaching 



I think it would be rather interesting to try an association 
test with the word "teacher" on the list of the examiner. 
When you actually consider teaching in the abstract, it is 
delightfully easy, even for one outside the teaching profes- 
sion, to become idealistic about it. Even the cynic will admit 
the vast possibilities for doing good and for performing con- 
structive work in character formation that are offered to any 
man or woman who has under his guidance every day a group 
of students numbering well above the hundred mark. 

Nevertheless, the reaction to that word is rarely of the 
idealistic variety. About it, for many years, there has been an 
aura of distaste which I feel those of us who are actually 
engaged in teaching and those of you who are about to enter 
it as a profession can do much to dispel. 

First of all, there is the attitude that it is a routine job, 
which is, of course, synonymous in our progressive world 
with the horror of "getting into a rut." Nothing could be 
further from the truth, provided — and this provision is neces- 
sary in any field of endeavor — that you are doing what you 
really want to do. No two teaching days are quite alike. You 
will find the variety exhausting, perhaps, but seldom dull. 
There is an independence about teaching, too, that calls into 
action and that develops all the resources of your personality. 
If you are doing a good job, there is little possibility of stag- 
nation in such an atmosphere. 

Secondly, there is the attitude, harking back to the very 
earliest days of Young Ladies' Academies, that teaching is 
detached work, haloed, no doubt, by an air of dusty gentility, 
but far removefl from the pressing needs of everyday life, 
conservatively deafened to the economic struggle of the 
world in general. I can understand this altitude very easily. 
The teacher spends most of her working lime with young 
children or adolescents, not wiih adulls, except in the realm 
of supervisory or clerical work. She should spend a good deal 
of her lime with general ideas and with ilie iiuulcalion of 
id<-als thai arc, unforliinalcly, at variaiuc with the general 
irend. From these points of view tier work is shellere<l to a 
great cxieiii from actual conlarls but (he possible efficacy of 



13 



her sphere as a iraining ground should not be forgotten. To 
nic it is tlic justiricaiion of a teuclicr's existence. 

In the third place, there are ilie diflicultics that tlie col- 
lege girl or boy has to fortify himself against at tJie beginning 
of his teaching career. No medieval castle seems quite as 
impregnable as that lofty eminence, spoken of in awed tones 
by the majority of young teacliers, "an appointment." There 
is tlie barrage of examinations that constitutes an acid test 
of physical and mental endurance. There are the thousand 
and one petty trials that beset everyone in a new position 
where allowances for inadequacy are not forthcoming. No 
panacea can be offered for these difficulties, except the trite 
but effective slogan that, if others have done it, you can. 

Primitive times provided like tests for those entering ma- 
turity and adulthood; ours are no less stringent nor exacting. 
The examinations one must face should never become the 
alpha and omega of one's college course, but a definite por- 
tion of one's college work, particularly work in connection 
with one's major, should be consciously directed toward 
their requirements, and that work should be extensive rather 
than intensive. Your mental equipment should never be 
guided merely by a set of questions; it should be looked at 
as a logical, well-balanced professional training in which it 
is your job to be acquainted with the thoroughness of a medi- 
cal student whose knowledge is in all probability going to be 
tested by practical needs. 

As for the pressing demands of those first few years of 
teaching, there are a number of practical skills which are 
somewhat neglected in training. You should know, for ex- 
ample, the curriculums of a number of schools, since many 
of them depart from the syllabus in some subjects. Clerical 
work, which of necessity takes up so much of a teacher's time, 
could certainly be made easier by a familiarity with the rou- 
tine duties of an official teaclier and a course in typing. 
Practical suggestions for the solution of the disciplinary prob- 
lems that are bound to face any teacher and a study of some 
of the types of maladjustments one is very likely to encounter 
should supplement a course in educational psychology or 
methods. 

These are not substitutes for practical experience, but they 
will smooth out a good many of the difficulties that beset the 
average young teacher and will take a permanent appoint- 
ment from the realm of the unattainable into the far more 
satisfactory realm of practical difficulties about which some- 
thing can be done. 

I do not think I am dealing in the abstract when I say 
that the Catholic college girl has a definite mission in teach- 
ing. It is no secret that forces subversive to all religious ideals 
are at work in the world; it is a matter of the most casual 
observation that every trend in the world about us is a trend 
toward materialism. 

A girl coming from college is full of ideals, but if she listens 
to the spurious arguments that are so prevalent, she is likely 
to become a follower along the much easier road. Her ideals 
are as sorely needed, however, as they will be sorely tried. I 
remember a sentence of Ren^ Viviani: "No man can say 
that he draws strength from himself. Heart and soul and mind 
and body would break were he to try' it." AVith the realization 
of the meaning of those words in her heart, no girl is going 
to allow any amount of popular philosophy to undermine her 
appreciation of her education or her faith in its value. The 
privilege of giving those in whose hands the world will one 
day be placed a source of strength beyond themselves and a 
dear vision of their responsibilities to that world is a work 
so real and so pressing that she can feel justified in directing 
all her training and all the resources of her mind toward it. 



Sisler Mary Immaculata '44 found Christ in a pall. (XVII I, 
No. 2, 29) 



White Grapes 



White grajK's embroidered on a pall. 

Or prccipiced from China bowls 

Are but the whiteness of the corpse, the shroud. 

The ashen coals. 

But in some vineyard scarcely seen 

The fragile rod of Jesse's root 

Though crushed and trodden, still is pulsing pale 

One, only fruit. 

This shelter of a seedling Life, 

(The Child Who was of Juda's least). 

Was bled to yield its wealth of rarest wine 

Unto a Feast. 

This haloed heart of thorns and stars 

Singing beyond its cup of gall 

Stirs me to thought each time I see 

White grapes embroidered on a pall.

experience during World War II. (XIX. No. 2, 6-7)

"I'm glad we put the tree over there. .\ren't you, Joe?" 

'Tes, it looks pretty good, Mary." 

"You don't think it is too near the fireplace?" 

"No," said Joe hopefully. 

"I was thinking that maybe the baby . . ." 

"Now look, honey, if I move that tree once more, the baby 
will be an orphan." 

".■Ml right dear," laughed Mary, "\\liy don't you sit down 
and rest for a while?" 

"You really mean it?" asked Joe. 

"Of course. Now sit in this chair. Here's a cigarette and a 
match." 

"Ah! all the comfons of the home you read about." 

'Tes and as long as you're amused I'll run upstairs and see 
if Pinhead's covered." 

^\'hen ^fary entered her room she went straight to the 
crib. In it lay Pinhead with his fists clenched and the covers 
at his feet. Gently Mary lifted him up on his pillow. Then 
when he turned she quickly pulled up the covers. But she 
was not quick enough. Pinhead turned again. He was dream- 
ing. 

"Mv daddy's a soldier," he murmured. "He flies a big . . ." 

\Vith that he settled down. Mary smiled a little. Then she 
ran downstairs. As she entered the room Joe looked up. 

"How is he?" 

"Fine. But Joe, I just remembered we forgot the fire 
engine." 

"■Where is it?" sighed Joe. 

"It's at the foot of the cellar stairs near the coal bin." 

"O. K. I'll get it." 

"I'll help you." 

"No Mary, you'd better finish fixing that stocking." 

".Ml right if vou're sure . . ." 

"I'llbeO. K/' 

Joe made his way to the cellar and lumbered down the 
stairs. A few minutes later there was a crash.

"WTiat happened? Did you break the engine?" cried Mary. 

"No, it's O. K." 

"What happened?" 

"Nothing except you won't have to worry about that 
bottom step any more." 

"I told you to fix that so many times." 

"W'ell I finally did. Look out, here I come." 

Joe with the engine on his back puffed up the stairs and 
just about made it. Mary breathed a sigh of relief. 

"As a reward for my labor . . ." 

"No Joe, you'll break it." 

"So I'll push it into the living room." 

"You'd better put it right in front of the tree. Pinhead 
will look for that first thing tomorrow morning." 

"Just as you say, honey, but . . . what about these ladders." 

"He has to have those ladders, Joe. That's why he wanted 
the engine." 

"With a mind that works like that, I guess he'll grow up 
to be a general," laughed Joe. 

"After all Joe it's Christmas and he's only two." 

"I guess you're right, Mary. For on second tliought he 
might be a marine." 

"I don't like the way you said that, Mr. Jones. Why did 
you say it?" 

"Well I was just looking at tliis place and I can't figiure 
out where we found the space to put the tree." 

"Joe Jones you know as well . . ." 

"Sure I do honey. How about giving your handsome hus- 
band a kiss?" 

"Trying to bribe . . ." 

Mary stopped when she saw Joe glancing at his watch. 

"Is it almost time?" she asked. 

As his answer, Joe took her into his arms and kissed her 
quietly. 

"Merry Christmas, dearest," he said. 

"Merry Christmas, darling. Do you . . . ?" 

"You know Mary I'm an awfully lucky guy to have this 
furlough at Christmas time." 

"Yes dear, but . . ." 

"I'd be the luckiest guy in the world if only . . ." 

"If only what?" 

"If only I could be sure that the star on the top of my tree 
was straight." 

"Oh Joe!" 

"I'm not kidding honey. Would you fix it." 

"Certainly if it will make you any happier." 

"Come on then, stand on this chair. Are you O. K.?" 

"O. K." 

yoe moved back toward the doorway. 

"Have you a good grip on that star, Mary?" 

'Tes, Joe." 

"Well hold on to it darling, till I get back." 



Agnes Fennelly '45 was obviously in charge when she inter- 
viewed Father Dillon. (XXI, No. 1, 22-23) 

Faculty Facts: Father Dillon 

Laughing at me a.i I tried to be diplomatic. Father Dillon re- 
fused to evade the question, and stated that he was born in 
Brooklyn, on July 4. 1892. He went to Public School, St. 
John'n College, and St. Lawrence IJniversily before entering 
*^' John's Seminary, and holds the academic degrees of A.B., 
NL, J.D., and the honorary degrees of L.L.B., and L.L.D. 



Father smiled when he reflected on his college days, and said 
that many of the incidents he recollected were not printable 
— "Think of the example they'd setl" 

As he grew up. Father concentrated on law, and on not 
being a teacher. Incidentally, he believes that there is much 
insincerity in the teaching profession, and thinks that for 
some people, the main objective in being a teacher is the 
prestige gained. Father is justly proud of St. Joseph's faculty 
members for their ability, sincerity, and genuine interest. (It 
was he who inaugurated die practice of sending the younger 
members of the religious faculty to some of the country's 
leading universities.) 

Following his ordination in 1917, Father was sent to St. 
Francis of Assisi Church and did a great deal of work in the 
contagious disease division of Kingston Avenue Hospital. 
The two years spent in that work gave Father more satis- 
faction than any other work he has done. Father was trans- 
ferred to the College in 1919, when Bishop Malloy was then 
Doctor Molloy, Professor of Philosophy. Nineteen hundred 
forty-four marks his twenty-fifth year here, and seventh as 
Right Reverend Monsignor Dillon. In twenty-five years, St. 
Joseph's has seen many changes, including the remodeling 
and acquisition of new buildings. The most radical change 
has been the establishment of student government. Father 
has stood almost alone in die diocese, and out of it, in advo- 
cating and practicing a system whereby the students govern 
themselves. He believes that the conscientious practice of 
student government will give the girls the right to live as 
individuals and to live democratically in a democratic system. 
There is freedom in St. Joseph's, and it is Father's aim to 
have us use our freedom well. It has been an uphill fight all 
the way. Father has been severely criticized for the trust 
which he has placed in the sincerity of the student body. Ten 
years ago at a convention in Louisville, he presented his ideas 
on the subject and his liberal views were so resented by vari- 
ous auditors that they refused to listen to his speech. In many 
quarters the resentment still holds because there is general 
unwillingness to believe that college students have the ability 
and energy to govern themselves honestly and live according 
to the rules which they themselves have made. Another point 
of controversy has been the honor system and student-admin- 
istered examinations. These practices are evidences of Fa- 
ther's confidence in the belief that all men are fundamentally 
good and, if treated fairly, for the most part they will respond 
fairly. 

Taking time out from his work as Dean, Father Dillon has 
found leisure at one time or another to be President of the 
American Catholic Philosophical Association and a mem- 
ber of its law panel, first President and one of the active or- 
ganizers of the National Catholic Honor Society — Delta Ep- 
silon Sigma — and president of the National Catholic Educa- 
tional Association. He is moderator of the Catholic Lawyers' 
Guild, examiner of the junior clergy, a director of the Brook- 
lyn Chapter of the American Red Cross, and a trustee of the 
Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences. He also belongs to 
the New York Academy of Public Education and the British 
Philosophical Institute. Father has written articles for the 
American Philosophical Association and for llic National 
Catholic Educational Association, including his p.iniphlet on 
student government. He has also written for the Journal of 
Religious F.ducation and contributed a chapter on law to a 
ten-chapter volume, whose title Father can't remember. 

In llic summer months, F.-itlier's role is dial of p.irish priest. 
He is pastor of Our L.idy of ilie M.-igriificii Cliurdi at Ocean 
Beach atid Our Lady's Chapel at .Sallaire. Tiie hurricane of 
1938 completely dcatroyed Our Lady's Chapel. For a time 



16 



nothing was found, but one month later the clialicc was dis- 
covered floating sixteen miles away. Nothing else was re- 
covered. 

At his summer parish, as at St. Joseph's, Father lives com- 
pletely alone — and likes it. Most of the time, he is his own 
cook, sexton, maid, and gardener. 

The thing that Father admires most about St. Joseph's is 
the way the girls respond to the religious exercises of the 
college, although they are not compulsory. He believes in 
religion without force, because only then can an individual 
receive the greatest good from the practice of his religion. 
Father Dillon lives a very happy and a very full life, and he 
finds life eminently worth while. From Angela Morgan's 
poem of gratitude, Father Dillon quoted a beautiful act of 
thanksgiving — 

"Thank thee for Life, for Life, for Life, 
O Giver of Life, O God!" 



Florence Burns '46 interviewed Father Conroy of Blessed 
Sacrament and found a parish life not too different from 
some ideals and practices at St. Joseph's. (XXII, No. 2, 20-21, 
40) 

Ideals in Action 

Interviews are always fascinating but the other day I had 
one that was so interesting I actually regained some of the 
zest I like to think I had, oh, way back before the compre- 
hensive. I learned a lot about St. Joseph's from a man who 
doesn't know a thing about St. Joseph's: Father Conroy, of 
the Church of the Blessed Sacrament on 71st Street, New 
York. 

I had telephoned Father Conroy and was invited to come 
to the rectory; Father had said that he would be very happy 
to discuss the practical details involved in introducing the 
Dialogue Mass in a large city parish. At the rectory. Father 
Conroy met me with another curate. Father Scanlon, who 
was responsible for the Dialogue Mass for the high-school 
girls of the parish. After explaining that at the College we 
were greatly impressed with the benefits to be derived from 
taking an active part in the Mass, I asked if they could sug- 
gest practical ways in which we could help to establish the 
missa recitata in our own parishes — only after graduation, 
of course. Then I learned that there is one concrete thing 
that every graduate of St. Joseph's must part with and that 
is the Dialogue Mass. Father Scanlon was sorry to inform me 
that while it is highly successful in a closed environment like 
the college, he is convinced that it is not practicable on a large 
scale — not yet at any rate. 

There are a number of reasons for this but chief among 
them is the fact that most .Americans are not used to taking 
an active part in anything but business and, consequently, 
do not favor religious exercises that become exercises. The 
words are harsh but true, as the examples, which both he 
and Father Conroy cited, indicated. Father Scanlon's parting 
suggestion was that the Dialogue Mass might be effective if 
introduced at the last ^fass on Sunday. He was convinced 
that it would drive the latecomers to earlier Masses. 

His departure seemed to preclude any further discussion; 
there simply was nothing more to discuss. I was therefore 
very glad when Father Conroy pursued the subject of the 
Catholic college girl in parish work. It is his conviction that 
we may one day have the Dialogue Mass on a wide scale if 
college students begin now to utilize what they have learned. 



He suggested that we start with small things, on the principle 
(hat big oaks from lilllc acorns grow. And ilien he began to 
explain, in terms of actual experience, how effective this 
program can be. 

In lilcssed Sacrament parish a small but active group of 
about fifty men and women are putting Catholic Action into 
practice. At this point Father introduced a young man who 
is one of the guiding sjjirits of their activities. They both 
described the discussions that have been carried out sys- 
tematically — something like "Student Speaks" on a more 
elaborate scale. Their one aim is to help in (he formation of 
right conscience and right living. What impressed me most, 
however, was yet to come. 

Father said tliat (hey recognized that much more could be 
accomplished if they could impress the high-school students 
with llie importance of intelligent Catholicity. By that he 
means, I think, a clear understanding of the truly Catholic 
viewpoint on matters spiritual, moral, and social. It was 
when he mentioned the specific aims that I began to form an 
entirely new concept of St. Joseph's. 

Father Conroy is trying to establish the Catholic tradition 
in the minds and hearts of the students. Because it can be 
expressed in all the little details of life as well as in the over- 
all picture, he began with the practical everyday possibilities 
open to a student. One of his most cherished aims, and one 
which he feels is most difficult of attainment, lies in study 
itself. The students must come to realize that education is 
valuable only for self-improvement, so that we may better 
help others as well as ourselves and, ultimately, for the ad- 
vancement of the Church's mission. They must be discour- 
aged constantly from working solely for marks. When he had 
finished, I could not help remarking that we have these ideals 
in practice. Throughout the four years, marks alone count 
for little; all honors are conferred on the basis of grades 
coupled with initiative, responsibility, and leadership. Father 
was happily surprised to learn this. Encouraged to find that 
it was easy for me to understand what he was driving at, he 
continued. 

To the high-school students he stressed the great dignity 
which complete honesty gives. The beau(y inherent in being 
honorable is what he wants them to grasp. And what is this 
but our honor system in exams. We are successfully carrying 
out what is still only a far-distant goal to many. 

Equally important for successful Christian living is socia- 
bility. Father knows that many social affairs are not social in 
practice but enslaved to the clique system. To overcome this, 
the students are sponsoring a dance at which there will be 
two special committees over and above the usual ones. One 
of these will greet the guests in friendly fashion, check their 
hats and coats, and gin'de them to other groups (no tips will 
be accepted); the second will circulate throughout the eve- 
ning making sure that cvcrvone present is included in some 
large group and having a good time. I (bought of the way 
our social affairs arc conducted, and particularly of the Christ- 
mas party. The traditional friendliness of St. Joseph's springs 
from the orientation and socialization programs. 

Finally Father Conroy mentioned the necessity for devel- 
oping leaders and encouraging in(clligcnt followers. No more 
need be said. It is apparent at once that if the high form of 
student government which we possess will not do it, the 
cause is hopeless. 

These four examples are no more than brief samples of 
what Father Conroy had to say. I realized of course, that 
at the college we have in operation Catholic Action at its 
best. For some reason, we, the students, have failed to realize 
that, and it has caused at times an imperfect functioning of 



16 



these ideals. They are as sound as ever, if only we can ap- 
preciate their true worth. Perhaps it is because we are so 
dose to them that true perspective becomes difficult. When 
1 told Father Conroy that I for one had never before com- 
pletely grasped the significance of our traditions, he suggested 
that if the undergraduates engaged in some form of Catholic 
Action — whether under that title, or under tlie Legion of 
Mary, or organized parish and confraternity work — our ideals 
might be centralized and more readily apparent. They would 
fit into place as part of the pattern of die Christ-life. 

On the long subway ride home, I mulled over all that had 
been said and finally determined to propose a rousing — if 
not rising — vote of thanks to Father Conroy for the new 
light he had thrown on St. Joseph's, even tliough he really 
knew nodiing about the College itself.

Sally Belmont '58 writes about a girl's first summer away 
from home and family (XXXII, No. 3, 2-4) 

Sand in My Pockets 

"Take your bags. Miss?" Cadiy looked up at the big round 
face of the colored porter standing in front of her. Without 
waiting for her answer, he retrieved the suitcases and started 
on ahead. The terminal was alive with the constant hum of 
voices, and an unending parade of commuters; someone 
began "Car leaving on track 29 . . ." 

"Where you heading for, Miss?" 

"Home," she answered, "New York." 

"Right this way," and he motioned with his head. He turn- 
ed sharply and for a moment Cathy tliought he was going 
to bump into the large woman heading directly toward him. 
In one skillful motion, he had maneuvered out of her way, 
and with an air of sometliing that resembled triumph con- 
tinued on. He put the bags aboard and smiled heartily. 

"There you are now. Miss, all settled. Have a nice trip." 

"Thank you I'm sure I will," she replied politely, and smil- 
ing back, slie handed him some change from her purse. 

The day was rather warm and the closeness of the car made 
her impatient for its start. She stared dirough the window, 
and again the sight of so many people made her pulse tjuick- 
en. The thought occurred to her how much she had missed 
the city's clamor at the beginning of the summer. It seemed 
incredible now that all those weeks had passed. And in less 
than six hours she would be home. She remembered die 
morning she was leaving for Bonnadilla, and how upset the 
entire family had been. Cathy did cveryUiing the last minute, 
even packing for her first summer job away from home. Final- 
ly, with everyone out of breath and nerves almost frayed be- 
yond repair, she was ready. Amidst goodbyes, and last miinite 
instructions, the ugly head of doubt popped up. 

"This is what I've been hoping for, " she kept repealing 
to herself, "a chance to be on my own. For the first time. I'll 



really be independent, even financially. Anyone would jump 
at a chance like this, and especially with an escape from 
this insufferable city heat." The queer, queasy feeling inside 
still would not leave. 

"Perhaps, they won't like me, or suppose they do, but I 
get deadly ill and have to be sent home." This thought seem- 
ed to cheer her most and then the realization of her chUdish 
attitude made her dismiss the feeling, and she began to relax. 

She laughed now, and startled by the sound of her own 
\oice, suddenly realized diat the train had been moving. 
Anxiously she looked about to see if anyone had been aware 
of her outburst. Cathy was more than relieved to find that 
everyone seemed quite undisturbed. She leaned back to find 
a more comfortable position, and almost immediately went 
back to her musing. 

It was rather humorous now, thinking back on the way she 
had begun her summer. Yet diere was nothing amusing in 
those first few nights away from home. Contrary to what she 
had hoped for, Cathy was neither disliked nor did she be- 
come tlie least bit unhealthy. Hers she believed was an even 
worse fate. The Manices were a gentle, elderly couple with 
kind eyes and a quiet dignity. Cathy knew at once she would 
not leave. They had tried hard, perhaps even too hard, to 
make her feel at home. Their grandchildren, whose parents 
were in Europe at the time, were in Cathy's care. The two 
little boys were quick to respond to her, and she loved being 
with them. But conversation wasn't exactly stimulating, espe- 
cially with a three-year-old who persisted in perfecting weird 
facial expressions and replying "no" to any and all practical 
proposals. The town was dull and empty. Nondescript was 
the only phrase she could settle on to describe Bonnadilla. 
July seemed reluctant to pass and Cathy felt mournfully that 
August would be just as stubborn. It could have been that 
her entire summer might have been spent this way, except 
for the fact that she broke her best nail, and then nothing 
was quite the same again. Of course tliat sounded ridiculous, 
but when she thought about it sensibly, it all seemed to fit 
perfectly. For what other reason would she have had to stop 
off that day at Anderson's and if not how could she possibly 
have tripped over Constantine's leash? Poor old Constantinel 
He must have thought she was awfully clumsy or pretty stu- 
pid to say the least. Anyone could have seen him tied to the 
door from a mile off. That is anyone who was looking ahead. 
But Cathy was much too intent over the loss of her nail, and 
before she knew it, she was in a much worse position, what 
with Constantine squealing and people staring. Almost at 
once, she felt firm hands gently lifting her, and a pleasant 
baritone inquired in very concerned tones if anything hurt. 

"Only my dignity," she managed trying for someUiing that 
might vaguely resemble sclf-coniposure. 

"I'm terribly sorry," he began. "I guess the Emperor got in 
your way." 

"The Emperor!" she exclaimed in a voice much too high, 
"I tripped over that dog." 

"Yes, I know, he's mine. Constantine's his name, comes 
from a royal family in Europe. I can't understand it. He's 
usually so polite." 

"Oh, it really wasn't his fault," she began. "You see I — " 

The thought suddenly struck Cathy lliat she had been 
listening to this ridiculous tale with a credulous ear and was 
actually about to apologize for a dog. Furthermore, this 
young man seemed cxlrcmeiy amused, and at her expense. 
He laughed then, a nice, good-natured laugh, and all at once 
she found herself laughing too, and all the tenseness was 
gone.

So Pete became ilic "one" in the cicrnal tale of boy meets 
girl. Pete, witli liis tousled brown hair and his nice clean look. 
He was tanned from the mn, and his dark eyes seemed always 
ready to tease. Vet there was so ninth behind those young 
eyes. Things that Cathy toidd not understand. And for some 
reason unknown even to herself would not try to. They were 
togetlier often after that day, and each time meant more to 
Cadiy dian she was willing to admit. Widiout realizing it, the 
loneliness had left, and witli a sudden an.xiety came the 
awareness that summer was almost over. 

She knew for certain tliat last night at tlie beach what she 
had tried so hard to avoid. They had been walking along the 
edge, close to tlie water. Pete's arm was around her waist and 
it felt warm and comfortable. Somehow, she didn't want it to 
feel as good as it did. There was something about this boy 
and tlie times they had sjient together. Something that made 
Cathy wonder if she would always remember them with this 
same vague hint of regret tliat she felt now. She thought of 
the lines Tennyson had written, and tliat she had read so 
lightly: "Better to have loved and lost than never to have 
loved at all." She kept turning these words over and over in 
her mind and she wondered. It hurt to think diat he knew 
she was leaving after the weekend and hadn't even mentioned 
writing. Once, she had half-jokingly, half-hopefully, invited 
him to the city. He had accepted at once, and in die next in- 
stant, she wished she could have taken back her words. He 
had no intention of visiting her and she realized it almost 
immediately. 

Pete stopped suddenly and bent down to pick up an odd- 
looking shell. With mudi ado he presented her widi what he 
termed a priceless gem. She slipped it into her pocket and 
they both laughed. "They were standing very close, and neiUier 
one offered to speak. For a very short moment, she thought 
he was going to kiss her and suddenly forgot all her resistance 
to being hurt. At that moment she wanted Pete to love her 
as she had never wanted anytliing before and hopefully, cra- 
zily, believed he might. They did not hear the sound of Uie 
waves or feel the water devour tlie sand under their bare 
feet; both were unaware for different reasons. The moment 
ended and with it reality returned. She saw something in his 
face and realized what she had never understood before. Pete 
was not looking at her. He had not even been with her these 
past few minutes. He was still far away, and comfort came 
only with the relief of knowing he had not seen her expres- 
sion and did not guess her feelings. She could no longer bear 
to look at his face, and abruptly began to walk ahead. He was 
beside her almost at once, and when he spoke, she smiled and 
was rather surprised at her own inner calm. She could see he 
was trying to explain, but his manner was awkward, even 
incoherent. He coiddn't quite get to tlie point, so she inter- 
rupted. 

"I can see you now, Pete, but I thought you didn't like stiff 
collars." 

He looked at her startled and then relief came into his eyes 
and his face lighted. 

"How did you know?" 

"I didn't. Not until a little while ago, but you've talked a 
lot about it, I suppose only half consciously. I finally put it 
together tonight. I'm glad Pete. I don't know what else to say 
except that I'm terribly proud of you and that — " 

He put his hand on her clieck, and she knew her skin felt 
warm even diough the night winds were cool. He smiled at 
her, that wonderful smile. There was no need to wonder if 
he had guessed. She knew he had. He spoke very quietly and 



his words were slow. She was thankful that they were not 
meant merely to comfort. 

"Cathy, I (lon't diink 1 have to say this, but I'd like you to 
know diat if there could liave been a girl for me, I'd never 
have let you get away." 

"Thank you, Pete, but I wouldn't have given you much of 
a struggle." 

They laughed then, and he caught her hand and held it 
tightly. 

"Sandwiches, ice cream, soda pop. How about a nice cold 
drink, Miss? Feels good on a day like this!" 

With a sudden start Cathy realized how thirsty she was. 

"Vcs, all right," she agreed and, reaching into the |>ocket 
of the light cotton jacket she was wearing, pulled out a quar- 
ter. She felt the tiny particles seep under her nngcrnails and, 
cupping her hand, gazed down at the insignificant grains. She 
was dimly aware of the figure standing over her and wondered 
vaguely why he had not moved on. She had forgotten she had 
not paid him for die soda. 

"Oh, I'm sorry," she faltered, "I just noticed something. 
I still have sand in my pockets."

Letters: The Selected Correspondence of 
E. P. Fitzsimmons and E. A. Moore 

Dear Ealin, 

I'm bored ... oh not existential bored . . . just no date . . . 
campused bored. Haven't failed any test yet, but it's only the 
second week of school. I miss New York . . . Dunmore is just 
sorta there after New York . . . You sure they repealed prohi- 
bition! Two girls got married so Uiey're free . . . You should 
see Lisabeth's engagement ring, we-e-11 on second thought 
you shouldn't see it — it's ghastly. Everybody was raving about 
how many points it was . . . What's a point? Suzanne's hair is 
the brightest red you've ever seen — an orange fuscliia I'd call 
it, but I'm not very charitable . . . Are you coming up for the 
Concerto ball? You know one must ask four years in advance 
to get permission . . . No idea for a story for The Maple. Have 
you heard from Mr. ? I know I'm not supposed to men- 
tion his name. Oh — 1 nearly forgot, how's your sister Hel? 
And of course your mare and pare. Eal, you know I haven't 
done any homework so I have to say "oh rivers." 

Beta 
Beta Darling, 

Life is positively divine! Maureen and I double dated with 
two university men. We went night clubbing and to Theta's 

Homecoming Dance. Mr. and I are tlirough. Are you 

still wrriting for that miserable amateurish literary magazine? 
Charles is up at Columbia. He's quite distinguished looking 
and not like the rest of these juvenile college boys. Dear, if 
one doesn't know what points are dien one will never know. 
However diamonds are weighed according to carats. Mtist 
close now. I'm going out with Charles. 

Ealin 
Ealin ole girl. 

Received your ripping letter, it was quite quaint to hear 
from you. Thanks ever so for information re diamonds etc 
Give my regards to your pater and mater.

Dear Elizabeth Anne Moore: 

He was a cad. He was an unspeakable cad. Call me a silly 
inunature youngster. I feel quite ridiculous. At this point does 
one crawl into a hole and die or squirm around in noisy mar- 
tyrdom. Read Elizabeth Barrett for consolation but she was 
found wanting. Please WTite me balms for the heart. 

Impassioned Ealin 

Ealin, silly rash girl, 

Old Charlie Chan could detect all the time in your pre- 
vious letter impending doom . . . Very sony chopp, chopp! 
Emily Dickinson is more apropos I should think. Forget love. 
Delve headlong into new activities . . . Sleep is the best ther- 
apy possible . . . How's Hel, did she get her basketball yet? 
"Valerie Seymour The Eighth" is getting a portable televi- 
sion for her room. Color nalureUcment. Life is rather boring 
here, it's Tuesday and I have one clean shirt. I exist from day 
to day. How does one go about washing a blanket? Dee had 
a little accident with a beer can. Speaking of Italian restau- 
rants, do you still have your Chianti bottle? You tried sticking 
a candle in it; vei7 funny. Well ole girl stiff upper lip. I wrote 
a poem for The Maple. Nothing special the usual — about 
night and loneliness . . . Don't cry. Alfred Neuman loves you. 

Beta, the Confessor 

Beta, friend in time of peril, 

Raoul cut my hair — S15 . . . Daddy had a stroke. I look 
quite Hepburnish. Life is on the upbeat again. Larry, a half 
god-half man, friend of Charles called me. He's different. 
You'd love him— he lives in the village and he's going to be 
a wTiter. N.B. he has a Volkswagen. I finally went to a Modern 
Art Gallery. Larry says they're the only kind. He's quite 
striking in an earthy sort of way, but he never takes me any- 
place one has to pay to get into. He's so different. He's always 
quoting poetry at me and You know I know no one but E. B. 
He says she's positively provincial. Who's Gertrude Stein? 
I've heard of T. S. Elliot naturally, but she escapes me. Well, 
Beta, I'm through with traditional ivy league men. 

Ealin — la boheme 
P.S. He doesn't belong to a frati 

Ealin, 

Some distant voice tells me that your half god-fialf man is 
rather tall and thin. That he has dramatic eyes — and no 
money. He sounds interesting. Have you been to his apart- 
ment? Does he have chairs? Does he drink absinthe? What 
color Volkswagon? You can tell a man's character by the color 
of his Volkswagon. Well my little Mimi, I suppose you are 
ready to cough yourself into oblivion in some damp Green- 
wich village garret. "Et tu Brute" . . . after laughing at me. 
School is ridiculous. I have ten reports due by Friday. Three 
in English, two in History and two in Philosophy. Re last 
»ub., wrote term paper on nature of reality. Ten pages clever- 
ly written saying there is no such thing as basic reality, or I 
can't prove I rit this paper. Sixty one more years and I can 
be a philosopher great joy — n'est pas. If I don't study Danic 
I won't be an English major, so I'd better close . . . Funny 
tome one poured red ink all over Suzanne's towel and she 
thought her dye had flipped its lid. 

Beta, Noted English, History 
and Philosophy scholar 
Scholar, 

What does one do with a-l index? Hate school violently! 
Home is absolutely wretched — Hel is taking piano lessons. 
I positively live for weekends. Larry takes me to this fjuaint 



little place in the village and we drink (you know in an exis- 
tential manner of course). Word of wisdom — don't ever go 
dutch, not even in jest. I'm hooked. One also gets tired of 
sitting on floors gazing at upsidedown paintings. Judy got me 
a date with one of her brother's (ugh) friends from N.D. I'm 
letting my hair grow. 

Ealin, (ex) college student 

Ealin of the long and flowing hair. 

Went out with a Senior from the neighboring institution 
for Thanksgiving. Blind date, best name ever invented . . . 
We went to The Globe to see "Love Story." Hated picture, 
hated him . . . Got A- in Phil paper. N.B. minus. Finished all 
papers without too much loss of blood — mind gone though. 
Two more weeks and I'll be home. Statistics show that I most 
likely will make it . . . That's the only thing that shows it . . . 
Dee's campused — on her way in last Saturday, good ole Deir- 
dre Murray dropped a Chianti bottle in front of The Dean's 
office. Loaded! The bottle that is, not the Dean naturalle- 
ment . . . Can't wait to meet Larry and the gang. I have a new 
pair of sneakers and some dark glasses . . . 

The late Beta Moore 

Beta dear, 

I'M going out to N.D. for the big game, isn't that the most 
. . . Terry doesn't play, he spends all his time in the lab . . . 
Larry's impossible. He traded in the Volks for a used (very 
used) Mercedes. It's a bright red. He's growing a beard, and 
practices Yogi all the time. Terry's getting a Mercury for 
Christmas. I'm working on Judy's brother so I can get you a 
date too. Proms are coming up you know dear and one can't 
go in grey sneakers and sun glasses. Really. Beta you must 
grow up after all you are a senior in College.

Alberta Van Valen '63 asks an eternal question. (XXXVII, 
No. 1, 34) 

Answer to a Too Curious Child 

Troubled child, please don't ask me why 
The whys of this world have no answer. 
After a hundred lives and a thousand years 
The whys of this world have no answer. 

The problems of life are all 'round us, 
Still the wise in this world have no answer. 
The hows we might know and ever the whoa 
But for why, the wise have no answer. 

Don't question too deep, don't question too long 
Lest you see all the problems too clearly 
And the more problems you see the less reason appears 
And the wise of this world have no answer. 

Live your life out, struggle for good 
But remember the whys have no answer. 
And when you have left us, question again. 
Perhaps, the Wise One will answer. 



Peg Candee '6-' went to Morelia, Mexico, to work for six 
weeks in the summer of 1962. (XXXVII I, No. I, 36-38) 

Six Weeks in Another World 

The tallest structure in the village was the old (hurch tower, 
probably built by the grandsons of the coiiqin'stadors. To call 



19 



the people to our "clinic," wc climbed this tower and r.iiig 
its ancient bell. Our clinic was an Air France travel bag. In- 
stead of the one or two people with minor injuries we were 
told to expect, about forty Mexicans with every variety of 
disease imaginable — acute dysentery, rheumatism, ear infec- 
tions, etc., made their way to the already overcrowded room. 
Wc laughed at our own inadequacy (as we were to "laugh" 
for six more weeks) and began to work. 

The small room in which we treated was the only room in 
the pueblo with a bed. Its ordinary occupants, dispossessed 
for the day, must have been considered nobility. We both 
maintained a brusque attitude to mask our frustration and 
annoyance. Women brought in children who had been un- 
washed for months. The village matrons seemed unable to 
associate tlieir children's lice-ridden heads with their filthy 
bodies. The blank expressions on their faces when we sug- 
gested in broken Spanish that they wash their children made 
us realize, as we would realize day after day for the next six 
weeks, their apathy and total inability to cope with the sim- 
plest details of their daily existence. But it was the rainy sea- 
son: diildren washed one hour were sure to roll the next hour 
in the mud and stagnant pools that were the "city" streets. 

In the absence of sanitary disposal facilities, the bandages 
and cotton swabs were burned. In annoyance, we shooed dirty 
pigs and dirty, curious children away. The crudeness of the 
disposal seemed to fit the crudeness and inadequacy of our 
treatment. With some of our "patients" we had felt helpless. 
We did not know what to do for amoebic dysentery; we could 
only stare at the bloody spittle of the tubercular man. And 
yet we were expected to cure both. 

Obviously we had more than enough dressings to keep our 
fire going. Exhausted and drained emotionally by our new 
experiences, we were packing our kit and preparing to leave 
when one of the peasant women called to us. She led us to 
her windowless hovel and begged us to enter. We saw what 
seemed to be a rag heap. It was a very old man. From all indi- 
cations he had had a stroke. She asked us to cure him. We 
gave him all we had — two aspirins — and began to leave. Smil- 
ing, with only the iinparalyzed part of his face moving, he 
called in Spanish, "God will repay you." It seemed for the 
moment as if He had. 

This feeling turned out to be premature when we were in- 
vited into the neighboring house and fed boiled cactus. Hos- 
pitality demanded that we eat; our gringo stomachs cursed 
our hospitable souls and swore to get even. 

We returned to Morelia on a shabby bus with one objec- 
tive in mind — a bath. We were greeted as conquering heroes 
by our as yet uninitiated comrades. We played the role to the 
hilt, and some of our elation was real. Throwing our clothes 
into a messy heap in a corner of the dorm, we resisted the 
temptation to burn them. In the next six weeks we were often 
repulsed by the very conditions we had so hopefully come to 
alleviate. We lay there on the beds and smoked .American 
cigarettes and later, in our letters home, described an expe- 
rience that had made the whole trip worthwhile.

Philosophy in Blocks 



"Dino, you're going to lose your pants. Pull them up. No, not 
down, up! . . . Oh well." 



I bent down to fix them. 

"Vou know, Dino— is that too tight? — one of these days 
you're going to go home and the community — hold still, I 
want to roll up the bottoms — the community frowns on 
thrtcyearold boys who lose their pants in public. Okay, good 
as new. Now why don't you go into the playroom. But no 
running around." 

Dino left. I got up, turned around and nearly tripped o\t i 
Lisa. She was standing in the middle of the floor, holding a 
pull toy in one hand, and rubbing her tear-stained face with 
the other. 

"Where's Mommy?" 

I picked her up and started to rock her. 

".Mommy's home. She'll be here later." 

"Now." 

.And so I began to explain, for the hundredth time to the 
hundredth weeping child, about what a hospital is, and why 
she was here, and how come Mommy can only visit at certain 
times. I couldn't tell her that the visiting rules were anti- 
quated, and that being in the hospital would make her revert 
to babyhood habits, and that nothing I wanted to change 
would get changed because I was a lowly volunteer and visit- 
ing rules were an administrative decision. 

The tears finally subsided and I lead Lisa and her pull toy 
to the playroom. Tomorrow morning's tonsil cases were dis- 
cussing the relative merits of the entertainment media. 

"Yeah, well monster movies are stupid. Nfy father says a 
stage show is better than movies." 

"I'd rather watch Dracula than them stupid Rockettes. 
And so would my father." 

"Hey you two, keep it down. This is a hospital." 

"Which do you like better, stupid monster movies or a 
stage show?" 

"Well, that depends .... Play nice, now, Lisa .... Bye." 

I left huiriedly for the relative security of Mary Ellen's 
room. Mary Ellen, two stuffed animals, a doll, and six crayons 
were playing together in her crib. 

"Good morning, ^J3^y Ellen. .Are you going to let me make 
your bed this morning?" 

"Uh huh." 

"Okay, please move over to that side." 

I loosened the dirry sheets, folded them towards the center 
of the bed, and placed the clean sheet lengthwise along the 
exposed mattress. 

"You know who that is?" 

I looked across her bed. through the glass partition, at the 
sleeping infant in the next room. 

"That's a beautiful little baby." 

"Yes, honey, that's right." I couldn't tell her that the rest 
of the world does not consider children with deft palates 
beautiful. 

By the time I had finished Mary Ellen, lunch arrived. I 
helped give out the trays and settle the out-of-bed children 
at the playroom table. Nfaiireen Cooke, the petite Irish nurse 
who had once told me that she picked pediatrics because "it's 
the only place where the patients are smaller than me," was 
calling the diet kitchen trying to get Lisa a tray. 

"That's right, Lisa Cummings, new admission, regular 
child's. I'm sure I put it on the order sheet. Don't cry, child. 
You'll get your dinner. Just be patient." 

I looked at the clock. It was after twelve. I said goodbye to 
Miss Cooke, walked out of peds, and hurried to the volunteer 
office to sign out. I had work to do that afternoon — a philoso- 
phy report on the problem of evil.

CLASS NOTES 



1920 

1 la iiiiiiihers of the Cilass of '20 lead <|iiiel lives these days. 
Qiiiel, bill not inacli\e. Each has her faxorite charitable ac- 
tivities and social engagements. .\mie .McUoniiell Daiiiie- 
miller and Ed are enjoying the sunshine in Florida at pres- 
ent, "riiere were some days when they would have exchanged 
it for that on Long Island, for Florida was not at is best • 
W'e all hope to meet on May 7 at our annual .Memorial Mass 
lor deceased classmates and teachers. Mass will be ollered at 
Si. Boniface at a cpiarter past twelve. The balance of the day 
will be spent in "chaiier-chatter-chatter" • All the talk will 
not be idle gossip. Inevitably it will turn to October 2. 1916 
— the opening day of tlie long-hoped-for Catholic college for 
women in Brooklyn! It is only now (hat we can fully realize 
the m.ignitude of that uiidi i lakiiis; and appreciate' tlie plan- 
ning and sacrifice it emailed. Bishop .McDonnell showed 
great wisdom when he entrusted this task to the Sisters of St. 
Joseph. He knew their loyalty and devotion to the cause of 
education and that, once ha\ing put their hand to the task, 
they would not turn back, no matter how rough the course. 
Consider the problems presented to Reverend Mother ^^an■ 
Louis: how to spare the sisters to staff this endeavor and 
then lo secure the instructors recpiired by the State of New 
York. Then, as now, only the best would do. ,\ complete list 
would occupy too much space in Alutnnagrnm but let us 
consider a few. Professors Jose|)h Tynan. Philip Curoe. .\. I. 
Dii Pont Coleman. .Angela Keyes. Abraliam London, Eunice 
Hanhart. .MaiT Shaughnessy. Edith Murphy. Atrs. Davis — 
all were highly qualified and honored in their respective 
fields. Can we ever forget ^^onsignor Flannery and Father 
Carey? Of course. Reverend Dr. MoUoy. who later became 
"our Bishop" holds a special place in our hearts. He was al- 
ways more dian a teacher to us: he was a friend to whom we 
could turn with any problem. In retrospect some of our 
problems then were of small moment, but we were shown 
the same kind consideration and wise counsel in later years 
when greater difficulties presented themselves. He was host 
lo us at our tenth anniversary dinner and our honored guest 
at many of our gatherings before and after that date. .X story- 
teller without par. he made each evening a memorable 
one • The page of dedication to the Sisters of St. Joseph in 
our yearbook notes that in deference to their wishes no 
names appear or specific reference to their place as teachers 
or advisors in classes or societies. Indelibly engraved in our 
hearts by their devotion are Deans Sister Cclestinc. Sister 
.Sacred Heart, and Sister Lumiiia: and our teachers. Sister 
Carmcla. Sister .\ugustine Maria. Sister M. de la Salle, and 
Sisicr .Angelica. They suffered through many a frustrating day 
for we were a lively group, but their patience and trust never 
failed us and we hope we justified thai f:iith. Sister Carmela 
is siill with us — dexoting manv hours of each day to praver 
before the Blessed Sacrament for ihe intentions of "her 



girls" and die welfare of llic College and all concerned with 
its administration. I know of the elhcacy of her prayers 
through my own personal experience and that of other mem- 
bers of our class. She is an inspiration to all who have the 
good fortune to know her. The other sisiers, now enjoying 
their reward beloie the throne of Clod. ha\e not forgotten 
the work they lo\ecl and. I am sure, intercede constantly for 
its success. I could go on widi specific instances of how each 
sister helped us achieve our goals but enough for now. I will 
sa\e some for the future. May this, the anniversary year, be 
the most successful in the history of the C;ollege and a fore- 
shadowing of a greater future — Marie McConnell 

1921 

It has been coincidental that the Class of '21, in this year 
of its forty-fifth anniversaiT. has already celebrated with sev- 
eral reunions • On the afternoon of November 25, Thanks- 
giving Day. Sister Mary Geraldine (.Agnes E. Byrne) flew 
from Buffalo to Boston to attend the three-day convention 
of (he N:itional Council of the Teachers of English. .Agnes is 
chairman of the English department at D'Vouville College, 
the college of the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart in Buffalo. 
Her sister. Grace Byrne Hill, although a former economics 
teacher and a lawyer, joined Sister Geraldine at the hotel to 
attend the sessions, luncheons, and other meetings of the 
teachers of Englisli — but reallv for the larger ])urpose of visit- 
ing with .Agnes • During the- last week in J;inuai-y. Sister 
Consucla Marie (.Mildred Duffy) of tlie Sisters of the Blessed 
Sacrament spent three days in New York as a companion to 
a Sister from the art department of Xavicr I'niversity of 
New Orleans who was attending the National Coinention 
of College .Art Teachers held at the .Americana Hotel. Janu- 
aiT 27. 28. and 29. Since Mildred was not attending the art 
sessions, she was free to meet her classmates at the hotel on 
January 27, and the visiting classmates included all but 
Catherine O'Hale Dwyer of the living secular members of 
'21: Eleanor Howard O'Lcary. Helen C^ampbell (who came 
from \\':ishiiigtoii. D.C.. ff>r the occasion). Marian McKenna 
Doyle. Helen Caulfielel. Ruth McCormack .Schneider. Flor- 
ence Newman. Cirace Byrne Hill, and Grace Reynolds. Dur- 
ing the visit. Mildred indicated her special interest in the 
grandchildren of '21. and she learned that Marian McKenna 
Dovle tops Uie list with 16 while Grace Byrne Hill and 
Eleanor Howard O'Leary have six each and Ruth Mc- 
Cormack Schneider has two • Mildred also was happy to 
talk about ihe \t:r\ recent completion of her definitive life 
of Mother Kalherine Drexel. the founder of the Sisiers of 
the Blessed Sacrament, who are this year observing the 
seventy-fiflh anniversar\' of their founding. Kalherine Drexel 
— A liintrraphy by Sr. Consuela Marie Duffy. SBS. is being 
|)ublishecl by Peter Rcillv Publishing Company of Philadel-

iial Gushing, who was a personal friend of Mother Katlierine, 
wrote the Introduction to the book and the Cardinal just 
recently published this introduction as an article entitled 
"Katlierine Drexel" in his column in the Boston Pilot. In the 
Introduction Cardinal Gushing pays special tribute to Sr. 
Gonsuela Marie's scholarly work, for which he says she is 
eminently qualified and which she undertook in a spirit of 
love and patriotism. ^Ve of '21 and all who are interested in 
the problems of the Indian and Negro in this counti^ eager- 
ly await the book's publication • During the last week in 
Januar)-. several other reunions were held in honor of Helen 
Campbell who has recently retired from go\ernment service 
in Washington: they included a luncheon, a dinner party, 
and several theatre parties • Besides Sister Mary Geraldine 
of the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart and Sister Gonsuela 
Marie of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, die Glass of '21 
has another member in religion. She is Sister St. Francis of 
Assisi (Eva Flinn), a religious of the Order of the Good 
Shepherd. Eva has spent the greater part of her life in for- 
eign missions — in Shanghai, in the Philippines, and currently 
in Hong Kong. Those who have visited with her recently 
sfwak of her tremendous executive ability and the wonder- 
ful accomplishments of providing facilities to care for the 
unfortunate "children" to whose care and salvation the 
Good Shepherd nuns are dedicated • The Class of '21 re- 
members fondly its five deceased members: Maureen Bing- 
ham Brady, Helen D'.\Ibora Cuoco, Agnita Duffy O'Con- 
nor. Helen Livellara. and Catherine Shannon and is 
planning a Memorial Ma.ss during the coming months —

For Alumnae Only 



INTERIOR DECORATION 
WORKSHOP 

Plan now to bring vour decorating qntstions and problems 
lo Clinton Avenue. 

Frances Kurd^eil Cerone, color and decorating specialist 
in tlie Color Planning Division of Benjamin Moore and Com- 
pany, will conduct an interior decoration workshop for 
alumnae. The eight-session workshop, from January 21 
tlirough March 14, will be held at the college. The tuition 
fee will be S5.0(). and enrollment will be limited to 50 alum- 
nae on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Among tlie topics to be covered in tire Alumnae Associa- 
tion-sponsored workshop will be color in all its aspects, furni- 
ture styles and trends, fabrics, flooring, carpets and rugs, 
lighting, accessories, and those "tricks" of decorating that 
help make a home a castle. 

Vou will plan and design a room and learn scale drawing 
witli the aid of a kit of materials made up especially for 
workshop registrants by Frances and included in the course 
fee. You will work with fabrics and others materials. Guest 
lecturers, specialists in their fields, and color slides and films 
will also help make the workshop an enjoyable as well as 
intensive learning experience. 

Registration information and applications will be mailed 
soon. 

YESTERDAY AT THE COLLEGE 

On December 5, Sister Vincent Th^r^se, president of St. 
Joseph's, announced repeal of the rule against married un- 
dergraduates continuing their matriculation. The hardship 
experienced by iipperclassmen in the past who had left to 
marry and applied for transfer credit elsewhere would be par- 
ticularly alleviated. A six-month maternity leave would be 
granted when necessary, but no allowances nor special con- 
sideration would be allowed the married undergraduate in 
regard to her meeting the standards of the College. 

The alumna who had left St. Joseph's before graduating 
and had not earned her degree elsewhere may now apply for 
readmission. Little difficulty in adjusting her program was 
anticipated since the basic curriculum had not changed sub- 
ilantially since the College's founding. Acknowledging par- 
ticularly the need for qualified teachers, St. Joseph's could 
now offer the readmitted alumna the choice among the 
teaching plans that would cjualify her to teach any group 
from kindergarten through senior high school. 

A.A.U.W. FORUM

ALUMNAE FUND 1967 

Diiiing ilii lll^l liliv \(,irs ()( its existence, St. Joseph's has 
become a leader among private liberal arts colleges in New 
York. Its alumnae have distinguished themselves in many 
fields. St. Joseph's is constantly broadening and enhancing 
its "enviroimient for excellence" to provide {piality Catholic 
education for this and fmiire generations, and in recent years 
it has been expanding and improving its physical plant, pro- 
\iding more modern and sophisticateil facilities and ecpiip- 
ment. To support this stri\ ing for excellence and to encour- 
age alumnae to participate more fully, the .Alumnae .Associa- 
tion endorsed the idea of annual giving. 

This is the second year that it has been ini|)k-mented 
among the alumnae. The generous response to date has been 
both encouraging and heartening. Last year, in our first 
.Muinnae Fund campaign, §32,753.91 was contributed to the 
William T. Dillon Child Study Center, a contribution by 15 
percent of the alumnae, .-\bove and beyond tliis, many alum- 
nae were still paying their pledges, amounting to almost 
551.000 in the fiscal year ending June 30, 1966, to the new- 
library. 

Alumnae F'und 1967 is off to a flying start. At our Class 
.Agents Workshop in September, letters were mailed to all 
alumnae outlining our plan to visit as many alumnae as pos- 
sible. Campaign workers did visit alumnae homes during Oc- 
tober and November, explaining the purposes of the fund

The annual Alumnae .Association luncheon will be held on 
the Starlight Roof of the Hotel Waldorf-.Astoria on .April 15. 
The entire floor has been reserved for the day, ensuring 
maxinnun privacy as well as enough space for all the alum- 
nae who can attend. 

The subscription will be SIO.OO. Our plans include two 
new. sj)ecial features. 

The (Jold Room, next to the Starlight Roof, has been set 
aside as a lounge where cocktails may lie purchased both be- 
fore and after the luncheon. Thus alumnae can plan to 
meet with their friends in this reception area informally and 
enjoy the convenience and comfort of the Waldorf's private 
service for get-togethers. 

The second, very special feature will be the honoring oi 
those classes diat are celebrating jubilees in 1967. Most of 
the jubilee classes, including the SiKer Jubilee Class of 1942, 
have toltl us they wanted to hold their reunions in conjunc- 
tion with the luncheon. Representatives of each of the jubi- 
lee classes have formed a Reunion Committee to work out the 
anangements. The committee will get in touch with all 
members of the jubilee classes soon. 

.Alumnae will be informed as soon as all details have been 
completed. 'Ihere'll be room for everyone at the .Alumnae 
.Association event of the year on .April 15. 1967.

Does the multiplicity 
of appeals 
get you down?* 

Well, no need to be ilismayed. Ihere sure are plenty of 
them, of course, but the real trouble is that a lot of us 
never had the facts of life about giving properly explained 
to us when we were growing up. Makes a big difference 
in your attitude. A few simple ground rules will go a long 
way toward coping with the situation — and easing your mind 
in die process. 

Vou start by quietly accepting the fact that voluntary con- 
tributions to worthy causes have always been a part of the 
privilege of being a citizen of these United States. Goes back 
to pilgrim days. In other words, we are not being unduly 
put upon in being asked to contribute — we are all expected 
to gi\ e something away each year for the benefit of mankind, 
both in pure charily and for purposes of betterment and 
progress. Therefore, an allocation for voluntary gifts should 
be a regular pan of the budget for every free man — not 
something left entirely to whim or caprice, nor to a solici- 
tor's persuasive tactics. 

Having accepted the basic principle, the rest follows 
easily. Obviously you could not possibly reply to every ap- 
peal you receive (nor should you, even though the cause be 
worthy). So it becomes a matter of (a) selection and elimi- 
nation — diose you personally eliminate are probably im- 
portant to other people and they are therefore the ones who 
should support them: (b) evaluation of those that are left — 
the ones most important to you. This process requires some 
son of plan — it's the lack of any plan that lea\es men har- 
ried and frustrated when llie .ip|5cals pour in. 

First, estimate roughly (ideally in [anuary) die total amount 
you could give away during the year, other things being 
equal. The Government itself, believing in private initia- 
tive, says it will forego taxes on 30% of your income, if 
you give it away properly. Very cooperative of the Govern- 
ment. But that's way loo niucli income for most of us to give 
away. So what's possible for you tliis year — 20 percent? 15 
percent? 5 percent? 3 percent? 71/2 percent? This is a prelim- 
inary estimate, before Tommy exceeds his budget for per- 
sonal damage (teeth and things), and other contingencies be- 
yond your contingency fund. 

Second, apportion tlie toial (iiiiaii\(ly in bioad catego- 
ries. Every man has his own |)ariicular interesis, bul a base 
chart (subject to individual modification) could be: 



Religious activities 
Educational projects 
Community services 
National welfare aiijieals 



30 percent 
30 percent 
30 percent 
30 percent 



1 he first three are the ones which most directly affect every 
iiidi\ idual. 

'I'hird, within each category, assign a tenlalive figure for 
those specific activities which are most important to you. No 
human being can be precise and uiuompiomising about 
this — the idea is merely 10 have a general ide.i. One thing, 
however, is sure — token gifts should be reserved for those 
causes whidi you merely want to pat on the back. 

Finally, ami this is important: keep track of your actual 

cotilribuiions during the year .so you can tell where you

The life of every man is a scries of crises. At birth he is pro- 
jected from warmth and security into a hostile and fearsome 
world of noise and insecurity. Then comes the adjustment 
to living and learning to survive the diousand shocks that 
flesh is an heir to. The passage from childhood to ailoles- 
cciice is often awkward, painful, and embarrassing. Nor are 
the difficulties over when the impatiently awaited one and 
twenty are achieved. .Nfaturity brings with it additional dan- 
gers trj be overcome, not tfie least of which is the crisis of 
identity about which much is heard today, 

Inslilulions also have crises to parallel such as lliese. and 
St. Joseph's Ojllege is no exception. Projected in lOlfi into 
a world thai couldn't care less, it managed to survive (he 
first shock of existence with surprising vitality. It (juickly ad- 
justed itself to an environment that merely tolerated a wom- 
an's college if it did tiol kill it with scorn and disdain it as 
jmt another finishing scl:ool with little if atiy pretensions to 
Kliolarship or learning. 

However, while su<li a college may be ignored or neglected 
in its early and formative years, when it begins to assert its 
right lo acceptance as a full-fledged member of the academic 
community, it encounters rigid tests of acceptance and evalu- 
ation. 



Our college slowly but surely won a begrudging acceptance 
Irom various accrediting agencies, received its charter, and 
after severe scrutiny from a number of evaluating teams, 
finally emerged as a bona fide pan of tlie intellectual society 
of higher education. 

Now after reaching its fiftietli year, it finds itself facing 
another crisis, this time thai of identity. According to its 
stated aims. Si. Joseph's is a Catholic college. 

Once it seemed that it was easy to iileniify a Catliolic col- 
lege as such, but now there is so miicli fermeni, change, aiul 
self-examination in C;atholic collegiate circles that it has be- 
come increasingly difficult to decide or determine exactly 
what that means. 

Some pro|)onenis of academic freedom insist ihal a Catho- 
lic college is a contradiction of terms. 'I'o them it woidd seem 
that the role of a college is lo .seek for the truth in an ever- 
expanding but ullimalely futile search. Once an institution 
protlaims th.it truth has been found, it becomes a sectarian 
society that can no longer (jualify as a real gathering of 
scholars. 

/\l one lime it was generally accepted, at least in Catholic 
circles, that the unifying principles of a liberal arts college 
were philosophy and theology. The |>liilosophy taught was 
a((ording lo the mind of St. Thomas and llic theology was 
an attempt tr) expl,iin st ieniificaliy Divine Revelation. 

Now Sdiolastif philosophy is having a real struggle lo sur- 
vive and ilieolf)gy is going iliioiigli an agoiii/iiig rcappiaisal 
in all ils many divisions. Captivating catchwords and phrases 

such as "(Jod is dead, I'homism is irrelevaiu," an<l "Kiliits 

is existential" are (hallenging the (eriainlies of other d.ivs. 





I'lii- College's rcpTfienlalivcs 




Honor Guard to the Archbishop 



Reverend Genimro D'Ecclesiis 



Skepticism and agnosticism are very much in, while certitude 
and faith arc considered on the way out, if not already gone. 

Dedicated to the ideal of academic excellence, our College 
must and will meet this crisis widi the same pertinacity of 
purpose that enabled her to reach her present ])osition of 
preeminence. 

First, it must renew its dedication to the continued devel- 
opment of all its departments. Since this is a scientific age, 
there must be no slackening of its seardi to know and teach 
all the wondrous secrets man is wresting from tlie physical 
iniiverse. 

The literature courses will have to continue tlicir exposi- 
tion of all llie glories of our Western culture and at the 
same time seek to know the best in tthc contemporarv world 
of letters. 

This updating will have to permeate mathematics, art, 
music, historv. the social sciences, and even die language 
areas. 



But the acid test will be what will happen in the sc.iiih 
for truth in philosophy and theology. 

The Fathers of X'atican Council II in their "Beclar.ii 
on Christian Education" gave us a clue as to how this is i' 
accomplislietl. 1 hev said: 

"The Church is toncerned also with schools of a hislui 
level, especially colleges and universities. In those sclin'iN 
dependent on her. she intends that by their very constiliu 
indi\idual subjects be pursued according to their own pi 
ciples, method, and liberty of scientific inquiry, in siidi - 
way that an e\en deeper understanding in these fielils uill 
be obtained and that, as cpicslions that are new and emu m 
are raised and investigations carefully made accortlini; i<> 
the example of the Doctors of the Church and es])ecialh dI 
St. Thomas .Aquinas, there may be a deeper reali/atioii nf 
the harmony of faith and science. Thus tliere is accomplislii d 
a public, enduring, and persausive influence of the Christian 
mind in the furdierance of culture, and the students of these 



8 



institutions are molded into men truly outstanding in their 
training, ready to undertake weighty responsibilities in so- 
ciety and witness to the faith in die world." 

Granted these are generalities. The specifics must be left 
up to the individual college and here is where St. Joseph's, if 
the history of her past is any guide, will rise to meet the new 
demands of a new age. 

Therefore, today as we bring to a fitting climax the year- 
long celebration of her golden anniversary, we can do two 
things: 

First, let us thank God for His aid and guidance in the 
past and, as we do, pray for all those who ha\ e gone before us 
and each of whom in his way contributed to making this day 
possible. Particularly do we commend to your orisons the 
bishops, priests, Sisters, and member of the laity, all of whom 
together with our former students constitute the intangible 
body known as St. Joseph's College for Women. 

Secondly, pray also for diose who are presently enjoying 
the sacred trust of guiding the destiny of our College in its 
present crisis. This includes the chairman of our Board of 
Trustees, His Excellency, Archbishop-Bishop McEntegart, 
and his fellow trustees, our president. Sister Vincent Therese, 
and her co-workers in administration, the faculty, and all 
the members of the Undergraduate Association. 

How appropriate in this time of the liturgical revival diat 
we are singing the Mass composed by Father D'Ecclesiis of 
our faculty and also how fitting that it should be the Feast 
of Christ the King. 

The key to the meaning of this feast can be found in the 
last few words of today's Gospel when Our Lord, in answer 
to Pilate's query, replies: "Yes, I am a king. For tiffs I was 
born, for this I came into the world, to bear witness to the 
truth. Whoever belongs to tlie trutli, listens to my voice." 

The kingdom of which Christ speaks is His Church or, if 
you will, die people of God. These people have spoken at 
many times, in many voices, and in many ways. One of the 
ways that witness is given to His truth is in the voice that 
cximes from our schools and colleges. In the days to come 
when Christ's kingdom will be assaulted on all sides and 
sometimes in the name of academic freedom, may St. Joseph's 
College continue to give witness to her undying devotion to 
ihe cause of Christ's truth in a world that needs it to badly.

REMARKS AT GOLDEN JUBILEE 
BANQUET 

Sister Vincent Therese, President, 
St. Josepli's College for Women 

It is ray happy privilege as an alumna, a former faculty 
member, and now as a member of the Board of Trustees 
and president of St. Joseph's College for Women to wel- 
come you this evening and to diank you for this evidence 
of your friendship. 

In the name of the alumnae, present tonight in person or 
in spirit, I would like to pay tribute to die members of the 
administration and die faculty who have contributed so sig- 
nificantly to the development of well-integrated Christian 
women. Through the years our administrators and faculty, 
characterized by a love of learning, a ceaseless striving for 
excellence, and a respect for die maturity of tlie students, 
have profoundly affected and enriclied the lives of alumnae. 

As a former member of the faculty I pay tribute to my col- 
leagues, past and present. From her earliest days Saint 
Joseph's has been singularly fortimate in having on her fac- 
ulty men and women whose enlightened response to her 
ideals and objectives, whose wholehearted acceptance of new 
dimensions in curriculum planning, and whose alert shap- 
ing of educational policies consonant with cliaiiges in the 
academic world have indeed provided the College with an 
eruironment for excellence. As early as 1925 die faculty with 
remarkable foresight delegated to the students "whatever 
was needful" for a true experiment in responsible self- 
government. From this came the stress on self-discipline 
which has made the honor system with its Court of Honor 
for the administration of unproctored examinations and die 
judging of any infractions one of the most valued traditions 
in the College. 

My responsibility as a trustee has sharpened my awareness 
of the support the College receives from its many constitu- 
encies. This evening's Iiancpiet pro\ ides a perfect setting for 
the expression of om gratilude. The long history of the Fed- 
eral and State Goverrnnents' iiuerest in higher education has 
been dramatically liighlighled within recent years in tlie pro- 
vision of additional funds for scholarship and loan finids, 
•Scholar Incentive Awards, lo;ins and grants for the expan- 
sion of physical facilities, and an extensive program of re- 
search ami study grants for scholars at every level and in all 
of the academic areas. In the name of the presidents who 
honor St. Joseph's by their jiresence on this dais tonight, 
I thank Governor Rockefeller and Clongre.ssman Clarey for 
their eiiergeiic support of these programs. Their personal 
commitment to the ideals of higher education has been re- 
flet ted in their persevering elloils lo endorse legislative pro- 
grams intended lo Mrenglhcn our position. 

St. Joseph's (College owes not only its inceplioii but also 
its development lo the generous assistance and encourage- 
mcnl of die Diotcsc of Brooklyn in llie persons of Bishop 
Ml Doiiiicll. .Xrdibishop Molloy. .iiid .Archbishop M< l',nl<-

Most Reverend Bryan J. McEntegart. 
Archbishop-Bishop, Diocese of Brooklyn 

In die past. 30 years was a long, long time. In our modern 
world, however, with time and space telescoped all about us, 
a half century certainly seems to be shrinking. 

But ,i(l golden years of existence is a long time. .-\nd to- 
night, as we look back and think of all the effort, all the plan- 
ning, all the sacrifice, all the talent that has been expended 
in the last 50 years, for die education of young women at 
St. [oscph's College, we find indeed a great deal to be 
ihankful for. 

Kiftv years ago. St. Iose|>h's C^ollege for \Vomen joined the 
family of colleges and universities in New York State — pub- 
lic, private, and church-affiliated. The significance of this 
event was that it represented the voluntan- effort of a group 
of citizens in this state to meet the needs of the community, 
to serve the public good, anil to advance die general welfare 
of our city and of our state. 

.\iul. in this connection. I wish to make grateful acknowl- 
edgmeiu to our Chief Executive. Governor Nelson Rocke- 
feller, for joining lis tonight. His presence is a source of pride 
and pleasure to the administration of St. Joseph's College, 
to the Sisters of St. Joseph, to the religious and lay faculty, 
to the student body, alumnae, and guests. 

It is also another example of the governor's great inter- 
est in. and support of. |)rivate education in this state. It is a 
further evidence of his executive determination to preserve 
the role of voluntary cllon on the part of citizens joining 
with government to serve the welfare of our people. 

I wish tonight especially to congratulate the Sisters of St. 
Joseph: their superior general. Mother Immaculata .Maria, 
and Sister N'inccnt Therese. president of the college. The 
outstanding leadership of these good sisters has eminentlv 
carried on the traditions of their predecessors and has en- 
abled them to forge ahead more recently with a new and 
outstanding program of development for the College. 

It is gralifving to me. as I am sure it is to all citizens of 
Kings Couiitv that, despite the universal problems and per- 
plexities of urban life. St. Joseph's College has chosen to ex- 
pand its facilities in the heart of the city rather than to seek 
greener fields. Brooklyn needs such resources as St. Joseph's 
College, and I am sure that the future will confirm the wis- 
dom of the sisters in pulling down dee|)cr roots in the Brook- 
Ivn commiinitv. 



must also look to the past and to the great people who serv- 
eti Si. Josejjh's so well. .My revered predecessor, the late .•\rcJi- 
bishop .Molloy, comes first lo mind in view of his long and 
alfeciionate ass(Kiaiion with ihe C^ollege from die day of its 
foiin.ilion in Mllli until his death in I!l3)i. We cannot forget 
iIk- Idv.iI. I.iiihful iiiieresi ol our late, beloved vicar general. 
Monsignor Moar, who lor so many years ftiliilled in name 
and in deed die duties of membership on the College Board 
of Trustees. 

A warm tribute of gratituile wells in our hearts as we re- 
call the unceasing labors, exceptional talents, and complete 
devotion to the interests of the College that consumed prac- 
tically the entire priestly life of its former professor, dean, 
and president, the late lamenietl .Monsignor William T. Dil- 
lon. His work and his educational foresight have indeed en- 
riched St. Joseph's campus in a timeless manner. 

Our gratitude is also directed tonight to our present vicar 
general. Monsignor Diviney. who served so eminenily as 
chairman of the 'I'heology- Department of the Odiege for 
over 20 years: to Monsignor Wicst and Monsignor Fit/Gib- 
bon: to the past and present faculty of priests: to the dis- 
tinguished lay faculty of present and former years: and. not 
least of all. lo the legion of Sisters of St. Joseph, many of 
whose names are now written in Heaven, who were the life- 
blood of the College for diese 50 years. We ask .Almighty God 
to bless and reward each one. 

There are so many aspects of the life of the College, so 
many ways in which it has served well both the community 
and the C^Iuirch. that I hesitate to single fjut one field. Yet, 
because of its particular significance. I would like to do so. 
I refer tf> ilie CJiild Siutly Center, which has been sudi a large 
and vital part of the campus for so many years. 

1 like to think that St. Joseph's College had a headstart on 
"Head Start." We are justly proud and conscious of the fact ) 
that this prestigious department was a pioneer in early child- I 
hood education in New York City. No less proud are we of ! 
the fact iIkii St. Jose|)h's College has served the City of New . 
York with distinction through the vast numbers of its alum- i 
nae who teach in the public school classrooms of our city, f 

There is not time for all our reminiscences. There is not |l 
time for all our congratulations. However, you know that I ( 
do most heartilv and sincerely congratulate you on your 
Golden Jubilee. I thank you in my own name, and on be- 
half of priests, religious, and laity of die Diocese of Brook- 
lyn, for your accomplishments of the past. 

.As I commend the future of St. Joseph's College to the 
protective care of your beloved patron. I invoke the blessing 
of -Almighty God upon all who will enter its doors in the 
vears that lie ahead. 



Reverend Robert I. Gannon, SJ, 
President Emeritus, Fordham University 

.\t the turn of the century. C^atholic public opinion was not 
too firmly conv inced on the desirability of rigorous intellec- 
tuality for women. The Cnlholic Enc\(lr>pe(lia as late as 
1911 carried an article by a learned Redemptorist which 
sought to reassure the troubled male of that time. 

"There is no need." he wrote, "to fear the overcrowdii^ 
of die academic profession by women. . . . Nature has a regu- 
lating power." 

The hope seemed to be that because of some (piola ar-! 
ranged bv nature, the overwhelming majoritv of females, 
woulil fail in their studies. You know die line: "Women 
have tremendous intuition but they can't think." .As it turn- 
ed out nature has fallen down rather badly on the job of' 
regulating. Our graduate scliools are crowded with brilli.iiii 
women. 

Today, however, as your golden jubilee rolls around. tli<

Your company 

will match your gift 

Compiled by the American Alumni Council 

Dollar for dollar, your gift to .Alma Mater can be matclied 
if tlie company for which you work is listed below. An in- 
creasing number of firms have joined this roster, maintain- 
ing "matching gift" progiams as part of dieir over-all pro- 
grams of support of education. 

• .AlUiough programs differ from company to company, the 
idea behind matching gifts is simple. When you make a con- 
tribution, you fill in a .short form provided by your employer, 
who matdies your gift by sending an equal amount to your 
college, university, or sdiool. 

• \'ou are the reason for these matching gift programs. Your 
employer is offering support to your Alma Mater in recog- 
nition of the contribution you, as an educated person, are 
making to your company. 

• Some of the differences between matching gift programs 
are indicated as part of this listing. For example, some pro- 
grams limit die level of institutions to which contributions 
will be niatched. Nearly all programs, while matching gifts 
to annual funds and development campaigns, exclude club 
or association dues or subscription fees as eligible contribu- 
tions. In most cases, tlie program of a parent firm will apply 
to its divisions, subsidiaries, and affiliated companies. 

KEY TO THE LISTING 

Since some programs have provisions which limit partici- 
pation to specific levels or kinds of institutions, diese pro- 
visions are listed in the parentheses following ilie name of 
the company. In other cases, persons other than alumni are 
eligible to have their gifts matched. This information is like- 
wise contained in the parentheses. 
The parentheses are coded as follows: 

1 Four-year colleges and universities are eligible 

2 Graduate and professional schools are eligible 

3 Junior colleges are eligible 

4 Independent secondary schools arc eligilile 
all .All four of the above are eligible 

epa Program excludes publicly assisted institutions 

Ipa Limited program for publicly assisted insiiiutions; per- 
centage of public support or capital gifts may be re- 
stricted; regular ])r()gram for private institutions 

epr Progiam excludes pri\ate institutions 

lim Program is informal or restricted to a liiiiiicd luiinbei 
of specified institutions

nc is Ijccoming \ery complicated. Since the liisi Woild 

there has been an explosion of information in all the 

lies unmatched in history. The number of theories to be 

I'd is staggering and many are obsolete before we have 

lice to study them. Planning for careers becomes more 

lit with the increase of possible occupations. 

/ iously, however, no college can pie|)are its students

From the Executive Board 



1967-1969 Officers Elected 

The slate of officers and Executive Board members for 1967- 
1969 proposed by ttie Nominating Committee and submitted 
to the alumnae was overwhelmingly appro\ed. 

Eileen Moloney Graziani. the new president, led the 
ticket with 628 out of the 6.55 ballots cast; scattered write-in 
votes accounted for the difference. Ballots came from as far 
awav as Uruguay and Canada. Florida and California. The 
total vote was over 900 percent more than the 1966 vote, an 
off-year election for Board members only, and a 20 percent 
increase in returns over the 1965 officers' election. The Board 
members saw this response as another \ote of confidence in 
the new Constitution's pro\ ision for greater alumnae partici- 
pation in the .\ssociation's activities through mailed ballots. 



American Association of University Women 

TTie American Association of Uni\ersity Women is the non- 
governmental organization recognized by the United States 
Government as the spokesman for women who have en- 
joyed the benefits of higher education: it is a very impor- 
tant organization, therefore, because it represents the opin- 
ions of American college women. In this day of ecumenism 
It is essential as well as fitting that Catholic college women 
become active members. The benefits to the individual are 
many, especially in the New York area, where the organiza- 
tion has not only an urban but also a cosmopolitan character. 
Women from all over the world engaged in various profes- 
sional pursuits make a stop at the New York Headquarters, 
sharing their experiences and their sociability with the New 
York members. Out of the New York area the organization 
has the additional function of acquainting .St. Joseph's alum- 
nae with the graduates of other colleges who may be living 
in the area, providing them with potential friends and the 
opportunity for intellectual stimulus. In foreign countries 
it can afford a friendly home-away-from-home at a moderate 
price, or at least a place where an alumna may learn somc- 
thitig more about the peojile of the country. Crosby Hall 
in C;liclsea, for instance, is the proud pos.se.s.sor of a fifteenth- 
century merchaius' great hall, which is used as their dining 
room and for entertaining university women visiting Lon- 
don. 

.Miimnae should be aware of the valuable and prestigious 
fellowships offered by the A.A.U.W. to American women 
who arc pursuing doctoral programs. 

Saint Joseph's C>)llege for Women is in the position of 
offering its alumnae the opportiiin'ly to become fidl-fledged 
members of the organization. For information concerning 
the branch closest to your home. [>lease write or telephone

sh(i|). the Day of Recollection, and many rewariling meetings 
>|)onsoreil by the chapters. 

The luncheon at the \Val(lorf-.-\sioria on .April 15 was 
hij;liliRlueil by the celebrations of the reunion classes, who 
relinned to mark their anni\ersaries with alumnae and 
faculty friends. Cleveland .\morv was an entenaining 
speaker and the afternoon was a happy anil exciting one. 

Earlier this year 55 alumnae and College seniors studied 
the do's and don'ts of decorating at a workshop held at the 
College- Chapters organized cocktail and bridge parties, sup- 
pers and lectures, and also worked to strengthen St. Joseph's 
influence in tlieir communities. Both the ConnettitutVVcst- 
thester and Flatbush ahminae organized their own chapters 
this past year: ihey joined the Nassau-SiiHolk. Bay Ritlge, 
Queens, .Staten Island. New Jersey, and Washington. D.C;.. 
chapters in the .Association. (\Vc hope that every ahmina 
will eventually alTdiate herself with a chapter where geo- 
graphically ])()ssible so that she will have (lie Ojjportiniity 
to participate more fidly in the life of oiu' .Mma Mater.) 

This year the .-Mumiiae .Association presented to Sister 
X'inccnt Therese moneys totaling SSl.llfi.fiO, the accimni- 
lated ahminae contributions to the following funds: William 

T. Dillon Perpetual Scholarship Fund, Sister Gerardus 



Scholarship. .Alumna S(hol:irsliip I'und (for .dtnnnae d.iii^l 
ters). Class of l<Hi5 Scholarship. Cl.iss of I'.ttW, Scholaisln| 
and .Alunniae (College I'und. I hese moneys had been <l' 
nated over the years but had never been officially presenuil 
to the College: instead the .Alumnae .Association dircdlv 
supported individual students. From Iflli/ on. scholatsliip 
moneys will be presented to the C^ollege annually. The scli i 
lion criteria remain the same, and the .Alumnae Scholarship 
Committee will continue to select the recipients of ilusi 
awards. 

.Alumnae Fund has continued to grow, and we have bun 
greatly encouraged by your response. Our goal is 100 pen 
alumnae participation, to the extent each alumna is able to 
contribute. 

The .-Xssociation is also indelited to many individii.il 
ahminae who lia\e also gi\en their time, energy, and inter 
est. They have helped immeasurably to make it an active 
.Association in 1965-191)7 l)y assuming leadership in various 
events and projects. I personally am very grateful to them 
One of the rewards of my term as president has been the 
pri\ ilege of working with such wonderful fellow alumnae 

'I'liese past two years have been enjoyable and stimulating 
ones for the .Association's officers and Executive Board mem- 
bers. I know I can speak for all of them, as well as for myself, 
when I say thank you for hel|)ing m:ike our term of office 
such a rewarding experience. 



Eileen Moloney Graziani, President. 1967-1969 

I 111- I'lcsideiuy of ilic .Aluiiiii.ie Assoii.iiioii h a privilege 
and an honor. I shall endeavor to live up to the standards 
set by past presidents, p.irticularly by Suzanne Trinneer. 
contiiuiing the tradition of promoting the interests of St- 
Joseph's and her alumnae. To this end. the comments and 




suggestions every alumna makes will be appreciated and 
acted on. 

The .Alumnae .Association has grown rapidly in the last 
few years. Our 3. !00 members live in 38 states and ten for 
eign countries. Several new regional chapters have organ 
ized. and more New Jersey and Brooklyn groups are form- 
ing to accommodate the increasing number of alumnae in 
those areas. Eventually, we expect to provide the opportu 
nity of joiin'ng a chapter to everv' alumna. (If you live in 
an area that has no chapter currently but want information 
about forming one, please write or telephone the C^ollege.) 

The recent alumnae luncheons have been notably suc- 
cessful (600 attended this year), and .Ahminae Fund helps 
St. Joseph's meet the continuing need for contributions, be- 
yond tuition and endowment, to implement its plans. We 
plan to continue these programs as well as the longer estab- 
lished Day of Recollection. .Aliimnae-\'arsity basketball game, 
and the dinner for the Senior Class. Last year the .Association 
sponsored an Interior Decorating Workshop that was highl) 
successfid. The Executive Board is considering a suggestion 
for an Investment Workshop featuring lectures by stock- 
brokers, lawyers, insurance advisers, and investment coun 
selors. The chapters are also planning theatre and cocktai! 
parties, luncheons, bridges, and lectures. 

The support of each alumna is necessary to make the com 
ing years beneficial ones, spiritually, socially, and financially 
for St. Joseph's. Her prayers, her work on committees, hei 
support of Alumnae Fund, her participation in .Associatior 
and cha|)tcr ;iilivities. and her spreading the news of St 
Joseph's contribution through words and deeds are essen 
lial to the new officers in fulfilling llieir responsibilities.

To Metropolitan Area Alumnae 



Wait till next year! 

Plans for the 1968 Phonaihon include calling from the 
College on successive nights in May by volunteers from eadi 
class. 

If double the number of alumnae had been able to call, 
more than double the nearly S5.000 in pledges might have 
l)een realized. Alumnae gifts, gifts of gratitude, recognition, 
or encouragement, have resonance. Their overtones readi 
the other friends of the College. Their influence never fades, 



bcciuse for e\ery studeni wlio graduates and e\ery dlilt 
who receives Pre-School training, many will emulate them 
Thus do St. Joseph's aims reverberate. 

Phonathon work is rewarding. // has resonance. 

It's fun. too. 

Next year we hope to help on the telephone, too, insteac 
of only licking stamps. Join us next May.

A Second Pair of Hands 

NATALIE GITTELSON 

ipciiiit Projects Editor of Harper's Bazaar 



In P.S. 20, at the intersection of Stanton and Essex Streets 
)n New York's Lower East Side, a pretty, blonde woman 
vearing a Pucci print dress and a string of real pearls waits 
It the tlireshold of Room 232. She laughs as a swarthy little 
prl in a soiled cotton skirt nearly knocks her over with a 
lug. They sit down together at a table witli a plastic box 
ontaining some of the paraphernalia of everyday living: a 
poon, a notebook, a comb, a toothbrush, a large cake of 
cap. 

"This is soap." ihe woman says to the chikl, eniinci.iting 
:acli word carefully. "Sose," tlie child repeats, caressing the 
)ar with a finger. "This is a comb," her tutor continues. 
Cone." says the child. The blonde woman runs it, descrip- 
ively. through Rosa's dark, tangled hair. "My hairs," Rosa 
ays, proudly recalling yesterday's lesson. "My eye. My chins. 
Ay teeth." 

.■\t a green taljle in the same large, airy room, another 
omewhat older woman coaches a handsome boy of about 
0. Pedro speaks more advanced English than Rosa. When 
he woman produces a pair of scissors from her box, lie re- 
ponds by taking a small I)lunt pair from his own pocket: "I 
laf scissors, too." he says, grinning. She picks up a little eel- 
uloid figure. "Tin's is a baby," she says. "Thees ees baby 
fo//," he corrects her. Smiling, she asks him the color of his 
bin. "Blue," Pedro replies, then adds Iirightly, "and my tic 
es red." The woman pats his head. "Soon," she predicts, 
ifith :i tinge of regret, "you won't need me anymore." 

Several such groups dot Room 232, all similarly absorbed, 
ach superintended by one of New York City's School 
Volunteers. 

School Volunteers are a group of more than 700 citizens 
^ho. under the supenision of the Board of Education, tutor 
lisad\. imaged children on a one-toone (or sometimes one- 
o-two) basis in (onversational English and reading. They 
Iso aid prckindergarten, kindergarten, first-grade and sec- 
ind-gradc teachers wiihin the classroom, each functioning 
s a "second pair of hands." Those talented in the arts offer 
lelp in dance, music, painting and creative writing. 

AlrhoMgh little known even to native New Yorkers, this 
irogram of nonprofessional inslrudional assisranre in the 
ity's public s<liools is now more than Id years old. Begun 
tl February, Hl5(), by the Public Education Assotialion, .i 
rivaie organi/aiion, under a three-year grant from the 
ord Foundation, it was incorporated into the Board sys- 
vm in l%2. 'Fhis year, under the honorary chairmanship

program [>laccs as much emphasis on the growth of 
'!■;■ Ill-,' |>ersonalities as it does on their academic skills. "A 
iiM leading ability may not improve as much as his self- 
nag" .ind his sense of worth," says Marcia Shalen, acting 
ireuoi of ilie .School Volunteer Program, "but one means

as much as the other." Often, as Mrs. Shalen points out, the 
\olunteer pro\ ides the child with the only uncritical, un- 
divided adult attention he receives. "In his overcrowded 
classroom and in his overcrowded home, it is very easy for 
him to get lost in the crowd — and ultimately, lost to society," 
she says. 

The meeting of ghetto child and middle-class grown-up 
frequently takes place with astonishing ease. Mrs. N., who 
lives in Peter Cooper Village, has been teaching reading for 
the last two years to a curly-headed fourth-grade Negro stu- 
dent in a class for the emotionally disturbed. "Bobby was so 
withdrawn before I met him that if his teacher could get 
him to make a decision about whether it was raining out or 
the sun was shining, she felt triumphant all day. He hung 
his head, he was entirely nuue in class. 

"But as soon as he sat down with a book, a blackboard 
and a piece of chalk — and one adult to work with him alone 
— something wonderful happened. Fie found his voice, he 
found his dignity, and he found out he was able to read. 
Sometimes you know you've touched another Inmian being. 
I think it's :is simple as treating a child as a complete ]K'r- 
son, without condescension, rather th:m as a reading prob- 
lem, a person.ility problem, or a problem of any kind." 



School Volunteers . . . tutor tlhadvantaged children . . . in 
cojuiersationnJ English and reading. 



Not every encounter, of course, has a happy ending. 
There are times when, however reluctantly, a volunteer 
throws in the towel. Usually, the child .seems inneachable, in 
need of more professional therapy than his (luor can give. 

Carlos, a I lyear-old boy whose speech is thickly accented 
but grannnatical and clear, waius passionately to learn to 
ri-;id. Bui he cannot. "Possible brain damage. Clar accident, 
3 years old," is the only clue that school reconis supply. Mrs. 
S. drills Carlos in phonics wilh mif.illering p:uience. He 
mulls over a (lash card on whidt three letters ,ippe;ir: bad. 
"B.id!" Carlos s:iys, tpiickly enough. "I tan H'ad that word 
:ind I can spell it now." But a minute later, he con- 
fuses "bad" with "dad." "Let me try again," Carlos says. He 
tries once more and, once more, he fails. Fie sinks his head 
on his fists, his slim store of iiulmsiasm spent. "I understand 
the .soiuids," he says, "but 1 (.ml . . .seem to . . , put them 
together." 

Mrs. S.'s optimism never wavers, at least not overtly. She 
is determined to be snccessfid wilh (Carlos this year. She 
works ti|) individual le.s.son plans for him, pores over text- 
books like "Phonics We U.se," and "Reading Made Simple," 
But she knows that the moment may come when she will 
have to tell her S.V.P. ch.iirman, "I'm afraid it's hopeless." 

I he program attracts volunteers of every age and kind. 
One, well into her HO's and still going strong, has taught 
liiMidreds of giils how to sew and knit. Mrs. U,, a recent vol- 



iiiUctT ill liii mill Id's wlio loiiiul lui lifi- ";iii iiimlnr.iMr 
void" when liiT founli :iiiii youiiRist iliild ut-nt oil to tol 
lege anil "left mc with an cmpiy house," speaks of how 
thrilled she was to liiid a plate "where they won't tell me 
I'm too old to work at 55 — or even 15 years after that." 

SA'.P. also actively encourages male pnrlici|)ation. A 
Wl'AT radio aiiiiouiuer who read a series of CO-second s|)oi 
commercials for the School Volunicers turned up the fol- 
lowing week to enroll. "It was the only time I ever sold my- 
self." he says. Mr. F.. a Negro officer in the City I'ire Depari- 
meni. tutors in reading and enjoys his role as "father figure" 
at the Harlem school were he works. "We have so many fa- 
therless chiUlien." says his .SA'.P. coordinator, "and diey so 
badly need a man like .Mr. 1'. in iheir lives." 

However, according lo M.ii\ Pease — one of 20 original 
vohnitccrs. who now screens recruits at .S.V.P. head<|uariers 
on West 51th Street — the typical S.V.P. candidate is neither 
the man in the prime of his life nor the giandmothcr beyond 
hers. .She is "ihc woman of 10 or so whose children have be- 
gini to grow up and who finds herself in the lliroes of what 
has been called '(he crisis of purpo.scIcssncss.' " This pecu- 
liarly feminine traimia seems to Afrs. Pease nearly as com- 
mon as intestinal virus in New York. The refrain that runs 
through her day is: "I'm lonely. I'd like to do something." 

•Seeking pinposc. volunteers come from Riverdalc, Scars- 
dale. Great Neck. Roslyn Heights, even ^Veslport. Conn., 
from Sutton Place. Graniercy Park. Bleecker Street and 
Peter Cooper Village. .Some ladies demand "a school in my 
area" or one with parking space for their automobiles. But 
most recruits, even those most unaccustomed to adxersity, 
say: "Place me where the need is greatest." 

Once thev are "hooked." whicli usually happens in the 
fnst month of serv ice. neither snowstorms nor subway strikes 
can keep them from their appointed rounds. S.V.P. requires 
them to contribute at least three consecutive hours a week, 
but many work five days, mornings and afternoons, shuttling 
back and forth between two schools. "There may be a kind 
of voluntary work that is mostly J)Iay." the old hands tell 
you. "but not here. We have no fasliioii lundieons, no 
theater benefits, no church committees and no money-rais- 
ing. Vou give only yourself. Blood." 

INot everyone who comes ihiough ilie door on ^Vcst 51tb 
Street gets tlie chance to "give himself," however. .Mthough 
the percentage of rejects among potential volunteers is 
small, interviewers watch carefully for those with signs of 
emotional instability ("some women obviously need the 
children more tiian tlie children will need them"); for tliose 
who have been coerced into volunteering by a well-meaning 
daughter or, perhaps, by a \\'ell-meaning doctor; and for 
those who re(|iiest a child of such-and-such an age in a school 
on such-and-such a street. Sometimes a letter from the fam- 
ily physician (recpiired along widi a personal reference and 
a chest X-ray) may suggest that the would-be trainee is "ac- 
cident-prone," "subject to undue anxiety" or in some other 
way unsuitable for service. Interviewers try diplomatically 
to "unsell" most of those who do not pass muster even be- 
fore they leave headcjuarters. 

Once accepted, the vohniteer undergoes a rigorous train- 
ing course before receiving her school assignment. Each re- 
cruit attends five full-morning sessions, beginning with a 
set of detailed orientation lectures and ending with a re- 
fresher workshop which takes place only after she has been 
in service at least a month. Every S.V.P. instructor (soine 
are seasoned volunteers, some skillful "pros" like remedial 
reading specialist Ethel Price) stresses, above all, the neces- 



siiv of nomishing eatli diild's belief in his own eveniu.il 
sue (ess. 

"He is already over-accustomed to failure," says C.nil 
Smith, a .Scarsdale volunteer of five years' standing who .1 
cusses "the cidture of poverty" at the initial orientation 
sion. "He has been deprived of a broad range of social ' 
perience and his limited view of the world makes ii dillu uli 
for him to succeed in school. Failure, worry and frustraii.ni 
sunound him all the time. He is limited both by his neiuli 
boiliood. from whidi he never estapes, .irid by the imuKili 
ale. practical, pressing concern of his f;imily." 

The meeting of ghetto child and middle-class grmvn uji : 
quently takes place with astonishing ease. 

.Among those who survive training, there is hardly a dilii 
lanie in a carload. The attitudes of professionalism seem in 
come naturally to ihem. although most h.ive never held | 
ing jobs. On workdavs. ihev live on paperbag lunches 
over coffee, swap anecdotes ;ibout "their kids," pool inl . 
mation on motivational lechnitjucs or. sometimes, lisn n n 
an informal talk I)y F.ihel Price about the latest chihlnn ■ 
novels. 

School principals, even ihose initiallv uiuonvinced ol iIh 
prailiiality of the \()lunieer operation, have learned (piickh 
to d(|)cn(l on their teams. Mrs. Kdna M. Clordon. the voiiiii 
Negro principal of P.S. Mil in Harlem says. "We take ilu 
voliuileers for granted as an arm of the school. They |n] 
their program into action a week or two after classes si;ir 
and we miss them terribly before they come. But to tell \i>i 
the truth. I was skeptical in the beginning. .-Xt P.S. 57 whc r 
I heard of these girls for the first time, you know wliiii 
.said? 'Those debutantes coming down here?' But they mnl 
a load off the teachers' backs. .And they proved themselxt- 
Oil. how they proved themselves!" 

At P.S. 20 Principal Benjamin Falon recently presciiKi 
an award to his S.V.P. team for "distinguished service to tli 
children of the community." "Most teachers don't like ili 
idea of working in a slum school." he says. ".And tluvi 
young, they marry and they're fertile. I lose teachers \ti 
fast. \'olinitcers. however, stick around — indefinitely." 

tnthusiastic as the volunteers, are, however, and siicics 
ful though they may often be. there are many experts in ih 
field who have reservations about the program. Some ai 
thorities believe, for examjjle. that the confrontation l)i 
tween the (usually) white adult and the (fref|ueMth 
colored child might not be all to the good. They bcliix 
that, ideally, a volunteer should come from the sami 
viroimient as the child, or else what psychiatrists call "im 
confusion" can result. The fashionable lady from the I'pi'' 
East Side may cause loyalty or identification conflicts wliit 
can endanger relationships with other adults in the chiUl 
life. .As|>irations may grow which, realistically, he will I 
unable to satisfy. 

Dr. Stanley Le.sser, chief psychiatrist for the Jewish B<i.ii 
of Guardians, also points out that "the diild whose m 
demic work improves under the one-to-one guidance nf 
grown-up often drops back to his original level of achiex

In some cases, he breaks down altogether because, aim

pectatioris for himself." 

A former volunteer who majored in child study al \:i^~ 
attended last year's S.V.P. recruitment rally at tlie New ^ul 



8' 



Hilton. She was struck, she reported by "its 'college confer- 
ence air.' The place was full of Davidow suits and Delman 
shoes. I observed no broad spectrum of women. 1 here were 
few, if any, Negroes. I couldn't help thinking of Lady Boun- 
tiful, giving her day of the week at tire hospital." 

This observer also sees significant booby traps in the ex- 
tra-help program itself. She notes, for instance, "the regres- 
sion, witliin six short weeks, of many diildren who attended 
neighborhood pre-kindergarten classes last summer. They 
came in as tough, self-reliant, independent little kids. Teach- 
ers, volunteers, assistant teachers and teadiers' aides hov- 
ered over them — tying their shoes, cutting their meat, teach- 
ing them how to hold a water pitcher properly. It was an 
intense softening-up process. They learned to cling, to cry, 
to hide behind a teacher's skirts. 

"From a developmental point of view, it might have been 
great — a second diance at the infantile stage of ego develop- 
ment they missed. But from a practical point of view, tliis 
sort of coddling may drastically unfit them for their own 
lives. .Are our middle-class skills and values of any real use 
to kids who live in the poverty pockets of the city? We stim- 
ulate ilieir minds, we refine their attitudes, but where do 
hey go from there?" 

Herbert Kohl, who formerly taught in some of Harlem's 
oughest elementary schools and is now research associate 
iit the Horace Mann-Lincoln Institute of Columbia Teath- 
prs College also asks questions about the volunteers them- 
f«lves. ".Are tiiey really concerned about the outrage of die 
llchools or are they applying salve to their own consciences? 
^lany of these women have money, influence and power 
that diey could use more profitably," he says. "Why don't 
hey demand to become proxy members of parents' associa- 
tions in the schools where diey tutor and tlirow their weight 
into the fight for real improvements? Wiiy don't they be- 
:ome personally, not peripherally, involved — on the adidt 
evel — in the gliettos of the city? Why don't they join com- 
nunity groups and iielp the ghetto families to articulate 
heir problems where and when it counts? This is precisely 
vhat people in the slum neighborhoods miss most — lliese 
ases of power that many of the volunteers coiikl com- 

nd." 

Notwithstanding such criticisms, there are many otiiers 
vho argue that the S.V.P. performs a very useful service. In 
he words of Dr. Aaron Esman, a child psychiatrist and di- 
ecior of psychiatric training at the Jewish Board of Guard- 
ins, the work is "worth doing, finilt' de mieux." He does. 



however, feel that the final test of the program must lie in 
its long-range results. "Unless such projects contain built-in 
evaluative units or they are systematically evaluated by out- 
side agencies, it is impossible to estimate what they actually 
do accomplish. .-Ml the volunteers may have great sensitiv- 
ity, skill and humanity. But what happens to die children 
afterwards? In the absence of follow-ups, who can tell?" 

S.V.P. 's first director, T. Margaret Jamer, believes that an 
exact yardstick of appraisal may be beside the point. "The 
warm relationships between these diildren and the volun- 
teers can be measured only in emotional terms," she says. 
"We don't know specifically the scope of the influence — but 
it is there." 



. . . the filial test of the program must lie in its long-range 
results. 



Perhaps die strongest evidence of belief in S.V.P. comes 
from those who help support it financially. The Ford Foun- 
dation recently awarded the Public Education .Association 
another grant — this one for §353,000 — to initiate a National 
School Volunteer Program, embracing 20 .American cities. 
Edward J. Meade, Jr., of die foundation, says, "P.E.A. was 
besieged with requests from school boards all over the coun- 
try: 'Tell us how to start a School Volunteer Program in 
Philadelphia ... in Los Angeles ... in San Francisco.' Tlie 
New York City experiment has certainly proved to us tliat 
trained, intelligent volunteers can do more than pull on 
galoshes and put away paints. While teacher shortages exist 
all over tlie nation, why not use iionprorcssioual resouKes 
to die hilt?" 



How to Become a School Volunteer 

.\s of February 19(i7, 300 cliildreu were w.iiting for help in 
71 schools in all the borouglis of New York City. I'he Board 
of Education needs 2,000 volunteers to a-ssist tiie underprivi- 
leged child in prekindergarten and other early diildhood 
clas.ses, 500 to give reading iielp, and 500 to teach conver- 
sational English to non-luiglislispeaking ciiildren (the vol- 
unteer does not need any ianguagi' but Ijiglish). Vohuileers 
must give a mininuim of tliree hours a week. For fintlier 
information, telephone the X'oluiueer Coordinating Coun- 
cil, Area 212 5(i(i-5<.)50. or write 280 Broadway (Room 709),

Dollars for Scholars 

Lillian Disken 

Saint Joseph's College for Women .Alumnae Association 
has traditionally supported undergraduates at the College. 
Numerous individual alumnae have supported students in 
various ways during their years at the College, and tlie 
Alumnae Association has sponsored scholarship aid luidcr 
various programs. The scholarship fiuids presently in ex- 
istence are: 

ALUMNAE scnoi.ARsnii> FLND For daughters of alumnae. 
administered by the Alumnae .Scliolarship Committee. 

THE WILLIAM T. DILLO.N PKRPETUAL SCHOLAR.SHIP FUND For 

a partial scholarship of $250.00 a year for four years, 
awarded annually to an incoming deserving student selected 
by tlie Alumnae Scholarship Committee on the recommen- 
dation of the Dean of .Admissions. 'Iwo undergraduates at 
St. Joseph are now being aided by this scholarship. 

THE SISTER cERARDUs scHoi^RsiiiP FUND Founded in 1952 
by the Nassau-Suffolk Chapter, which aims to help one de- 
serving student with each $1,000.00 raised. 

THE CLASS OF '65 SCHOLARSHIP .Awarded to a deserving for- 
eign student of the Class of '69. 

THE CLASS OF "66 SCHOLARSHIP Awarded to a deserving stu- 
dent selected by the President of the Class guided by the 
Admissions Office, the Guidance Office, and the Clollcge 
Scholarship Committee. 



THE ARCHBISHOP MOLLov SCHOLARSHIP .All award of $200.00 
a year lo a deserving student chosen by the College Scholar- 
ship Committee. 

In the past the alumnae scholarship funds, other than the 
-Archbishop Molloy Scholarship which has been adminis- 
tered by the College, have been supervised by the Alum- 
nae Association. .A designated representati\e of tlie Alum- 
nae .Association has ])aid individual bills in loco parentis. 
Since tlie Association has held this money, the College has 
had to list "no contribution" on the annual national ques- 
tionnaires that inquire about alumnae contributions for 
scholarship aid. In order to correct this misapprehension, 
the Executive Board has voted to entrust the administration 
of the fluids to the College Business Office. The .Alumnae 
Scholarship Commillee will continue lo designate the stu- 
dents for the scholarship assistance contributed by alumnae 
and the profits from alumnae activities deposited in these 
accoiuits. 

The bankbooks, therefore, were presented to Sister \'in- 
cent Th(:r0^se at the Aliminae Liuicheon on .April 15. In this 
way, while the alumnae will retain a genuine interest in 
the inidergraduates sponsored, they will also be able to in- 
dicate to the public their regard and respect for the intel- 
lectual experience to be gained at St. Joseph's, and the Col- 
lege with be able to demonstrate to foundations and corpo- 
rations the loyal interest of the alumnae in its program, a 
determining factor in their support.

Class Notes 



1921 

The Class of '21 has shown great interest in and has been 
very happy about the new, definitive biography, Katharine 
Drexel by Sr. Consuela :\Iarie (Mildred Marie Duffy '21). 
Sister was released from teaching and worked for more 
than a year at the motherhouse of the Sisters of the Blessed 
Sacrament in Cornwells Heights, Pa., and had access to all 
the Community archives and annals. From these she has 
gathered the facts of an American foundress, one of the most 
amazing women of our times. The book has been well re- 
viewed as an "excellent portrait of a remarkable woman." 
Since its publication Sister Consuela Marie has recei\ed 
many invitations to discuss the book before various audi- 
ences. The Regional Catholic Library Association of East- 
ern Pennsylvania brought her to Philadelphia to be the 
guest speaker at their annual luncheon at the Hotel Sher- 
aton. She has also addressed groups in New Orleans and 
Chicago. The Class of '21 is 100 percent behind tliis book. 
Sister has written se\eral letters to thank her classmates for 
the generous support they have given in purcha.ses and cir- 
culation of the book. To her it has been a most encouraging 
demonstration of the closeness of the tics that still bind '21 
together — Grace A. Reynolds

two summer (amps at IlaiKcxk, N.Y, where 70 girls and 70 
boys are attomniodalcd dining the season, 22 horses, four

1930 

The members of the Class of 1930 were saddened by the 
death of their classmate. Sister Mary Anthony (Theresa 
AVehman). Dot Hanagan Griffin, who had always kept in 
touch with her. wrote: ".Vfter graduation from St. Joseph's. 
Theresa received her nurse's training at Mary Immaculate 
Hospital in Jamaica. N.Y. Shortly thereafter slie joined the 
Sisters of the Infant Jesus of Pmgue. Since then she spent 
most of her religious life at Mercy Hospital in Rockville 
Centre as a nurse. For over thirty years prior to her deatli 
she suffered from multiple sclerosis. In spite of this afflic- 
tion her indomitable spirit, her courage, and her undying 
faith in God's help enabled her to carry on a useful life in 
the service of God. When nursing became a physical impos- 



sibility, she performed less arduous work. Although she 
spent the last live years in the infirmary, she was a constant 
source of insjiiration to her sisters in the Ojnununity. W'c. 
her classmates, know that God has seen fit to reward her for 
a life speiu in the service of the sick and troubled. Like 
many people who live a life of suffering, she will always be 
remembered for the good works she perfonnccl in spite of 
an almost overwhelming physical hamlicap" • If the

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

gest a candidate, including yourself, to the Nominating

Farrell, the executive secretary, at the College. You may 
call her on the new Alumnae .Association telephone, 
MA 2-4636. 

BOARD MEETINGS OPEN TO ALL ALUMNAE 

I Yes, they are. This distinctive provision is one of the features 
of the new Alumnae Association Constitution, as approved 
in 196.5. While the final decision rests with the Executive 
I Board, elected from the whole Alumnae Association, your 
I ideas and views are wanted. They are even necessary. Are 
you aware that many a suggestion from a nonmember has 
finally been approved by the Board. Certainly all are con- 
sidered and most are acted on favorably. And one of the 
ways the Board renews itself annually is by discovering the 
alumna who is interested enough to present her ideas to 
them. So, if you have an idea or poitit of view tliat no one 
else has presented, don't wait for someone else to act. It's 
up to you. Please come, if you can. 

Following is the schedule of remaining Board meetings 
for this year. The meetings are held in the Alumnae Room 
at the C;ollege, beginning at 7:30 P..M.

1968 SPRING LUNCHEON PLANS 

Saturday, May 4, at noon are the day, date, and time for 
the annual Alumnae Spring Luncheon. Where? The Star- 
light Roof of the Hotel Waldorf-Astoria, of course. Just as 
last year, the whole floor has been reserved for the day so 
there will be the same space, time, and privacy the more 
than 600 who attended last year enjoyed. 

Again, the Gold Room, next to the Starlight Roof, has 
been set aside as a lounge where cocktails may be purchased 
both before and after the luncheon. You can start planning 
now to sit down infoiTnally with your classmates and other 
friends either before or afterwards, once more enjoying the 
convenience and comfort of the Waldorf's private service 
at your get-together. 

Again, too, the anniversary classes will have front row 
seats, enjoying not only the spotlight enhanced by the 
golden candelabra on their tables, a signal to all the other 
alumnae that this is a doubly joyous day for them, but the 
closest proximity to a widely known and entertaining guest 
speaker. The jubilee classes will hear from their class 
leaders, and all alumnae will also be infoiTned of all the 
details as soon as they have been completed. 

Mark the date now on your calendar. You can look 
forward to the outstanding Alumnae Association social 
event of 1968 on Saturday, May 4. 

Lillian Disken, Chairman 
Anne Seitz Smith, Co-chairman 



ALUMNAE DAY OF RECOLLECTION 

Saturday, March 9, will be the annual Alumnae Day of 
Recollection at the College. Claire Bauch, fomier Alumnae 
As.sociation officer and Executive Board member, the chair- 
man, is now planning the program for the day. 

Claire has called for suggestions from the Board and 
from you too, hoping to revive this event in the Associa- 
tion's calendar as second in attendance only to the 
Luncheon. Among the suggestions she already has are: 

The program should include a folk Mass. 

The program should not include a folk Mass. 

A priest or priests associated with the College are 
preferred. 

Homilies in the Chapel are preferred. 

Discussions in the Rec Room are preferred, with the 
Chapel used only for the Mass. 

The Recollection Day Leader should be prepared to lead 
a discussion of problems we are interested in rather than 
setting his own theme. 

The program should only be about four hours long, 
including a simpler luncheon, since it is difficult for most 
of us to leave our families for what amounts to a whole 
day. 

You can let Claire know your ideas and preferences by 
calling Mary Eli/abetli McLoughlin Farrell a( the College, 
.MA 2-4656. Pick up the Icleplione and call her today. The 
Hoard afid (;lairc all want to offer those who can plan to 
come the Day of Rccollc-clion llicy want. 



The William T. Dillon Child Study Center 



THE GROUNDBREAKING 

The faculty, undergraduates, members of the Board of Trus- 
tees, members of the Alumnae Association, members of 
Monsignor Dillon's family, parents of the Preschool children, 
and other guests gathered on the Mall on the afternoon of 
Monda\', October 30, for the groundbreaking for the new^ 
Wilham T. Dillon Child Study Center. 

Right Reverend Monsignor Ra)Tnond Leonard, as master 
of ceremonies, introduced Sister N'incent Therese, president 
of St. Joseph's. Sister Mncent welcomed all those assembled 
on the Mall, and spoke movingly of all those who had first 
dreamed and now were helping make the center a reality. 
Monsignor Charles Diviney, V.G., a former faculty member, 
blessed the ground and recited the prayer for ground- 
breaking. 

Sister \'incent; Re\erend Mother Immaculata Maria, 
member of the Board of Trustees; Elaine de Felice, presi- 
dent of the Undergraduate Association; and Eileen Maloney 
Graziani, president of the Alumnae Association; joined to- 
gether to break the ground. Monsignor Leonard first led 
the congregation in the recitation of a prayer to St. Joseph, 
patron of the College and then presented Sister Margaret 
Louise, director of the Preschool and chairman of the Child 
Study Department, with a plaque bearing the Coat of Arms 
of the College which was carved and donated by the father 
of Elvse O'Toole, a freshman. 

Following the groundbreaking ceremonies, a Concele- 
brated Mass was offered in the Auditorium for the repose 
of the soul of Monsignor Dillon and for God's blessing on 
the new building. Concelebrants of the Mass included Mon- 
signor Diviney, Monsignor Leonard, Father Michael J. Cant- 
lev, member of the Theology Department, and Father 
Thomas M. McFadden, executive secretary of the Diocesan 
Ecumenical Commission and also a foniier faculty member. 
The Offertory Procession at Mass was led by Maureen 
O'Reilly, president of the Religion Committee at the Col- 
lege, and Carol Bracco, president of the Cliild Study Club, 
bearing candles, with Helene Lane Lent '47, and Sister 
Miriam Roberta, S.C., nieces of Monsignor Dillon, bearing 
the cruets of wine and water to the altar. Following Mass, 
Monsignor Diviney addressed the guests, paying tribute to 
Monsignor Dillon and praising his leadership, vision, and 
innovative spirit for the College. 

THE BUILDING 

Tlic ii(\'. Ijiiilcling, which evidences the continued expansion 
program of the College and its commitment to the Brooklyn 
community, is scheduled to open in Se|)lcml)<T I9f)8, with 
its dedication planned for October 12, 19fi8, the fourth anni- 
versary of .Monsignor Dillon's death. 

Tlie modern two-story structure will be located on thi- 
far end of the .Mall, along Vanderbilt Avenue, and will 
cover an area of 1.5,700 square feet. Clark and Warren of 
Poughkeepsie are the architects of the new structure and 
Schumacher and Forelle the contractors. 

Tlie first floor will contain an all-pinpose room and the 
office of the director of the Child Stufly D(;partincnt, Sister 
Margaret l^misc. Ph.D.; offices for her s<'crclary; the school 
nurse; and four staff offices. Three Preschool classrooms. 
each with its own observation booth, will be local(!(l on the; 
secotid flof)r, as well as three testing rooms, three remedial 



rooms, and two therapy rooms. The new facilities haxe been 
planned to allow for future expansion to a third floor. The 
added space could be used for an ungraded primary school. 
The new Child Study Center will allow a larger enroll- 
ment of preschool children from the present 60 to 100 and 
it will be possible to have two sessions. Greater participation 
by the undergraduates will also be possible; there will be 
more classes, allowing for greater distribution of time of 
observation, and the three booths will accommodate more 
observers at any one time. The all-purpose room will be used 
for undergraduates in courses requiring special materials 
and for science, mathematics, music, art, and social-science 
methods courses; the room will also facilitate the growth of 



DOROTHY ROESER '31 GIVES $20,000 

At the gioundbrcakinj^ for the William T. Dillon Child 
Studi/ Center on Monday, October 30, Sister Vincent 
Therese announced a gijt of $20,000 from Dorothy Rocser 
'31 in memory of Father Dillon. 

Under the terms of his will, Dorothy's uncle had set aside 
this large amount for Iter to give to an institution or chari- 
table organization of her choice. She chose the Child Study 
Center, and her great gift is noiv counted in Alumnae 
Fund 68. 

Three days later, on November 2, Sister Vincent received 
a note from Dorothy saying that on the day she was writing 
(October 30) .<ihe was entering the Discalced Order of Car- 
melites as a posttdant. 



auxiliary programs that are now limited for lack of space. 
Interinstitutional cooperation will grow: many more groups, 
such as those from nursing schools, Puerto Rican teachers' 
institutes, and other colleges, will be able to visit and share 
experiences with both faculty and undergraduates. 

The testing rooms, remedial reading rooms, and special 
speech therapy rooms with audiomclric equipment will be 
available for the use of undergraduates who must gain 
experience in testing children and for speech majors study- 
ing speech therapy. The testing rooms will allow for in- 
creased service to the community and local schools that 
send children to St. Joseph's for testing and consultation. 

Estimated cost of the Cliild Study Center is .$59(),()()(). 
More than .$8(),()()0 toward the co.si of the building has 
already been donated by the alumnae, and the C^enter has 
been named the beneficiary of the Alumnae Association's 
anmial-giving program for the third consecutive year. Addi- 
tional foundation and community support is also l)eing 
sought. 

Since its inception in 1938, the Child Study Program of 
St. Joseph's College has gained national recognition as a 
unii|ue and outstanding jirogram in an American college. 
Under the chairmanship of Sister Margaret Loin'se and with 
the faculty and |irofession;il staff, the C:liild Study De|)art- 
nient Ims become the largest in the College, willi over 50 
percent of the students enrolled in the piogram. The- new 
Child Sindv (.'enter, theicfore. will meet the needs of the 
d< partinent, and the needs of the connn\inity in terms of 
increased enrollment of neighborhood cliildr<Mi i[i the Pre- 
school as well as expandetl lommunily activities will be 
served.

The Magic of the Small Gift 

by FRANCIS C. PRAY 



There is a world of power and helpfulness in big gifts. But 
there is a special magic in small gifts when they have a 
special meaning for the giver. 

At a time when educational institutions e\ervwhere are 
organizing special clubs and programs to encourage annual 
gifts of SI 00 or more and at a time when manv schools, 
colleges, and universities are creating "Associates" programs 
at the SI, 000 level and up, it is important to sav once again; 
There is a world of power and helpfulness in big gifts. But 
there is a special magic in small gifts when thev have a 
special meaning for the giver. 

Big gifts in the order of hundreds, thousands and hun- 
dreds of thousands, and even millions of dollars are the key 
to attainment of distinction of the private school, college, or 
university and the key to attainment of special quality by 
the public institutions or other cultural organizations. 

But these institutions would be poorer in spirit as well as 
in means without the outpouring of small gifts, which repre- 
sent a kind of magic all their own. 

Someone once asked, "How big should my gift be to be 
significant?" A wise administrator replied. "It should be 
big enough to be significant to vou, the donor." No other 
measure has vahdity. In the best sense, there are no "small" 
gifts, but only gifts which are regarded as being small or 
large by the donor. 

.\nother donor once asked, "How big a gift should I 
make?" And a young alumnus answered, "I try to give 
enough so I care how it is spent." 

Some alumni, alumnae, and friends feel that the gift of 
a smaller amount of money is lost in a large budget, in a 
large building program, in a comprehensive program of aid 
to students. But there is another way of looking at gifts 
and that is to ask, "What do they do?" 

Perhaps the best answer is to say that each gift, iii what- 
ever amount, always in last analysis accomplishes a specific 
rather than a general purpose. 

Buildings are aggregates of real bricks and real beams 
•Hid real steel and real man-hours, each item of which has 

'Reprinted from Alma Mater, Vol. XXXIV, No. .3 (May 1967). 



to be paid for in real dollars. Libraries are collections of 
individual books, documents, microfilms, pictures, record- 
ings, and works of art, each of which has to be purchased 
with real dollars. Help to a student is expressed in support 
for a room, individual meals day after day, learning mate- 
rials, tuition and fees, and these things have to be paid for 
in real dollars, day by day, meal by meal, book by book. 

I f there is hesitation about making a small gift because 
there is a feeling that the gift is lost in the larger sums given 
by others, remember that in the building every brick bears 
an equal load. The gift which buys a single brick is as sig- 
nificant in the completion of that building as the major gift 
which bu\s a wing or an entire floor, because every brick 
is needed! In a library, each book is a specific, tangible, real, 
and useful part of the whole. The small gift that supplies a 
book contributes in proportion as significantly to the library 
as the large gift tliat supplies manv items. It is not lost! 
To the student using that Ijook, that book right then is the 
most important part of the library. And it might not be 
there if a particular gift had not been made. 

In the case of scholarship aid. the small gift may supply 
the equivalent of a week's lodging, dinner on a Tuesday 
night, or the books required for a chemistry course, but its 
use is just as specific, just as real, just as tangible in its 
proportionate way as the larger gifts that supply many 
more of these items. To the boy or girl eating a dinner pro- 
vided through scholarship aid, that gift may mean just the 
difference. 

I he magic of the smaller gift is even more pervasive. A 
school, a college, or university becomes great as it has great 
teachers, students who can profit from its offerings, and a 
superb physical plant. But in every one of these cases one 
further ingredient is needed if the institution is to h.ive 
prestige — that ingredient is the high regard of its contem- 
poraries and the support of its alumni and friends. Not alone 
through their material means is this expressed. It is ex-

TO HELP YOUR CLASS REPORTER 

The class reporters present at the Alumnae Leaders' Work- 
shop at the College on September 30 Noted to accept the 
Editor's suggestion that the .-Mumnae Office contact all 
alumnae for .News Notes through each issue of All'mna- 
r.n.\M, through a business-replv card. Each alumnae will be 
asked to fill out the prepaid post card with news of her 
activities and mail it to the College. The News Notes re- 
ceived by the deadline for the next issue will be turned 
over to the class reporter so that she can put together 
the story of her clas.smates' activities in the past half vcar. 

This method was devised to get around the difficult\- 
many class reporters encountered in keeping in touch with 
you and to help them fulfill this large responsibility. Of

pressed with equal means through the ambassadorship and 
goodwill that flows from their involvement in its future. 

.\s Emerson said, "A gift without the giver is bare." 

The gifts to your school, your college, or your university 
that contribute most meaningfully to the success of the 
institution, be the gifts small or large, immediate or de- 
ferred, in cash or in kind, in dollars or in services, are those 
that also represent and are accompanied bv the donor's 
warm regard and concern for its \velfare. 

Without the big gifts, our educational institutions cTiuld 
not mobilize the strength to attain quality. Without the 
small gifts and the concern that goes with them, the insti- 
tutions would lose their present idcntit\' and the threads 
would be weakened that connect them to the larger society. 

Gi\e whatever n'ou gi\e with pride. Gratitude for your 
support is not measured by the size of the gift but truly bv 
its significance as measured by you. 



NEWS ABOUT ME 



The Institute de Estudos Socias 



(Editor's Sote: The following is a condensed version of the 
Institute's 1967 Report we received from Grace Ann Coscia 
'38, who is its unsalaried director-administrator. ) 



History 

The Diocese of Jatai, comprising an area approximatelv 
the size of New York State, is located in the midwest in- 
terior of Brazil, some three-hundred miles southwest of 
Brasilia in the state of Goias and bordering the states of 
Mato Grosso and Minas Gerais. A population of 400,000 
people is sparselv spread, with the majoritv concentrated 
in some ten cities, two to five hours driving-time from the 
See city of Jatai, which has a population of 30,000. The 
economy is agricultural: cattle raising, rice, sugar, coffee, 
fruit, cotton, etc. The growth potential of the area, much 
of it still virgin territory, seems assured. The construction 
of Brasilia and the new roads and utilities to serve it gave 
the impetus to the growth of this previouslv isolated region. 
The future is even more promising; the Pan-American High- 
way, in the process of being extended, will transverse the 
diocese from north to south, through the city of Jatai and 
other kev cities of that area, thus opening a frontier com- 
parable to the Kansas Citv area a hundred vears ago. 

When the Bishop, the Most Reverend Benedict Dominic 
Coscia, OFM, assumed the direction of the diocese in 1961, 
his immediate need bevond the staggering lack of resources, 
including schools, hospitals, and churches, was personnel, 
lav or clerical. His initial program was based on these nega- 
tive conditions. In five vears, he was able to obtain per- 
sonnel and establish them in essential parts of the diocese 
(there are now about 100 religious and lav people, mostly 
Americans, trained in the language and customs, part of 
and deeply involved in the life of the communities). In 
terms of social action for the poor, a day-nursery and or- 
phanage was established for girls (the nurserv has proved 
to be a boon for working mothers ) ; soup kitchens and milk 
bars, not only for alimentation but for training in elements 
of nutrition were opened; a worm clinic, staffed by a nurse 
and laboratory technician from the States, to combat the 
underlying cause of malnutrition among the poor was also 
established; and chapels and churches were built and staffed 
in most parts of the diocese. 

With the basic essentials cared for, the Bishop turned 
his attention to some long-range planning and action for 
the development and growth of his people, based on his 
•perience of 17 years of work in the interior of Brazil. 

Communications 

The vast, distances and the total lack of any communica- 
tion led to the purchase of a radio station in 1962 with 
funds raised by friends of Bishop Coscia in the United 
States. With programs of development information on edu- 
cation, health, and civic duties, as well as jirograms of 
musical and light cultural entertainment, reaching all people 
in all parts of the diocese, the first major step was talcen in 
broadening the level of social consciousness for them. 

Education 

Two considerations, after determining tliat local school 
f.i'ilities were aderjuale, led to (he decision to build and 

'.iblisli an adult (raining center fr)r the diocese: 



The People Element. The lack of leadership within the 
communities was painfully obvious in the poor conditions 
of the cities, inadetjuate health and sanitation facilities, 
poor development of natural resources, inadequate trans- 
portation, the political system, by its very nature, ineffectual 
in local government, and a host of other conditions. Cohi- 
munity spirit, that element which motivates people to work 
for the common good, was nonexistent. The vast distances 
and isolated areas in the Interior tend to develop individu- 
alists, of necessity, interested in self-survival. The exodus 
of professional and other educated persons to the cities was 
on the increase — students trained in the universities of Rio 
and Sao Paulo and other schools stayed for a short while 
and then left for better opportunities elsewhere. The very 
people who had the most potential to be or become leaders 
were lost to the communities. 

The Time Element. To build and staff schools and de- 
\elop potential leaders would take about 20 vears and would 
affect or benefit a small proportion of the populace. 

The action taken bv the Bishojj in order to reach and 
train the most people in the shortest possible time was the 
construction and establishment of a training center for adults 
in Jatai. The ob]ecti\es were: to train current and potential 
leaders of the communities in techniques on constructive 
leadership; to train adult members of the commvmities in 
group relations, group involvement for the common good; 
to be adaptable, flexible, and available to the needs of the 
communities, as indicated by local authorities and/or the 
people and work with them towards a solution; and to 
operate the center on a nonsectarian, nonpolitical basis, 
open to all races and all levels of society. 

The center opened unofficially in June 1966, with a 
course in journalism, conducted bv a lay person, a Papal 
Volunteer from the States. The purpose was to establish a 
news sheet for the town. Officially, the Center was inaugu- 
rated on December II, 1966, and it has been in full swing 
since then. 

Facilities

Activity 

1 lie piifKiplf hcliiiid tlie coiifcrfiices, workshops, ;iiid 
seminars licld liotueeii June lyfifi and Mav 1967 was de- 
fined and clearly understood: it was to lie based on the needs 
of the eommunity as detemiined by the people of the com- 
munity. Explicitly, tliis means waiting for tiie opj-nirtunitv 
to be of service when asked instead of imposing our view- 
points and remedies for the particular problem; listening, 
counseling, motivating, directing, as each skill is called for, 
toward the realization that thev themselves can resolve the 
problem, they themselves can act effectivelv. This is not 
as nebulous as it sounds; it is all contained within an organ- 
ized framework, with .skilled personnel trained in the self- 
development and growth of people. The only wav to demon- 
strate this method of operation and its fiexii)ilitv is to relate 
two key incidents that pointed the way to the type of 
courses which were given and should continue to be given, 
in the future: 

The first opportunity came in July '66, when a delegation 
of women (2) visited the bishop and indignantly asked 
when he w as going to open a day nursery or orphanage for 
the boy-children of the poor, who roamed the streets as 
beggars and minor delintjuents. The women were asked, in 
turn, what they and the rest of tlic community were going 
to do about it, since the bishop had quite a list of good 
works to his credit. This response came as a great shock 
to the ladies. Bewildered, they questioned how it would 
ever be possible for them to rcsoKe such a problem. The 
suggestion was made that the\ enlist the interest of ten 
other women to participate with them in a workshop that 
would demonstrate how to proceed and act on the solution 
to this problem, as well as other social action activity. 

A date was set — two weeks hence — for a three-da\- 
workshop. The intensive preparation bv the Training Center 
staff was well worth it - three sessions "SEE, JUDGE, 
ACT." Instead of 12, 2S women of various creeds, classes. 
and political affiliations appeared, the first time for such a 
group in the history of the Interior. .At that first brainstorm- 
ing session of "See," they came up with no less than 20 
suggestions for social action, in the areas of health, educa- 
tion, .social assistance, civic (juestions. and even the influ- 
ence of bad politics and politicians on the life of the com- 
munity. In the "Judge" session, three problems, which thev 
felt were high on the list, were selected for their particular 
action as a start: public health stations, ineffectual and in- 
operative, hurting the poor, most of all; career traininfi. 
ser%ant skills for country girls in particular, to deter them 
from a life of prostitution; the rfat/ nursery for hoys of the 
working poor. The last session, "Act" was devoted to 
forming committees and discussion of w^iys and means 
toward solutions. In subsequent meetings and conferences 
of the three groups, separately and together, under the 
coaching of the training center staff and over a period of 
time, the women did effect significant results in their proj- 
ects: The day nursery needs only <jualificd personnel to 
start operation. The public health stations are functioning 
with their assistance and assistance obtained by them from 
state authorities. The career training materialWas written 
and given to 2.8 senant girls for a successful beginning. 
The other projects? The ladies, now unofficially called the 
".\migas de Jatai." are working at them. 

The second opportunity came shortly thereafter, and in 
itself was more important because it established the kind 
of courses that should be given for training leaders and 
developing group relations. 

Again a visitor came to see the bishop and director, this 
time a lawyer and educator for 20 years, an acknowledged 



and respected leader of the community. Impressed by the 
open invitation to use the Training Center, he \olunteered 
his sir\iccs as an instructor. Specifically, he felt that there 
was ii great need for the training and enlightenment of 
political leaders and the citizenry on group action for the 
common good. At that particular time, during the three- 
month period between the outgoing and the newly elected 
council, the town was at a standstill. Work had stopped on 
the sewer and road projects; schools and other public insti- 
tutions under repair were neglected; civil marriages had not 
been performed for weeks because the judge had left and 
a new one had not been appointed; these and a host of 
assorted ills were leading to the demoralization and frus- 
tration of the townspeople. The mayor was getting no co- 
operation because the Council members were of the oppos- 
ing political party. 

If a way could be found to attack the problem now, a start 
could be made to prevent it from occurring again. 

Aware of the situation and already planning for it, the 
Center had a suggestion for the profes.sor. a seminar on 
"Human Relations at Work" to teach the rudiments of 
group relations in the \ital area of earning a living: how to 
improve their income and growth potential bv working with 
others, on an objective basis, in their field of endeavor. 
Dr. Rubens would give the course, based on the text 
Rela(;oes llumanas no Trahalho c na Familia bv Pierre 
Weil. .After an intensive orientation and indoctrination on 
the subject matter and techniques of T-group instruction 
and training, an invitation was extended for 20 men to 
attend the first seminar. Of the 16 men who started, 1 1 com- 
pleted the ten two-hour sessions. They were: an eve surgeon, 
a councilman, an assistant bank manager, an accountant, 
three bank tellers, a clerk from the food cooperative in town, 
an owner of a wood factorw and two mercliants. As of this 
time, four seminars have been given, the latest one com- 
posed of heretofore strongly individualistic personalities of 
the community, the Council members! 

Shortly afterwards, it was decided to extend invitations 
to the women to participate in Human Relations in the 
Family Seminars to discuss behavior patterns within family 
units that affect the growth and development of the com- 
munit)-. This same course, with modifications, was also ex- 
tended to the young women, with the stress on their future 
in the community. This two-pronged approach, group rela- 
tions at "work" and in the "family," has stimulated an 
awareness of community which just did not exist before, as 
evidenced bv the unprecedented number of requests for 
more courses and seminars. 

This was how it started; the pattern was set. A glance at 
the acti\ifv report indicates the wide range of topics and 
interest: a course in cooperatives, given bv a skilled team of 
technicians from Rio and Xatal, an instructor's course to 
professors on methods of teaching hygiene to grade school 
children, conferences on how to help children in areas with 
no schools, a meeting called bv the doctors to enlist the aid 
of townspeople in warding off the close of the Regional 
Hospital because of lack of funds. (The doctors took a 
Iieating. mismanagement and lack of organization were 
i>rought out as the primary cause, but the whole town 
learned a lesson. ) In all, 1 ,659 jicoplc took part in 55 con- 
ferences, workshops, or seminars for a total of 11,284 train- 
ing hours, from July 1966 to March 1967. 

The Future 

SinipK' slated, the objective is: to develop a broader 
nucleus, a wider reserve, of people interested and trained

Flatbush 

Chairman Mary McCabe Duggan led off with the first 
meeting on October 5th. .After an introduction of new offi- 
cers and discussion of plans for the year, the group enjoyed 
a talk bv Monsignor Raxmond Leonard on the liturgy and 
changes and femient in the Church. .A. bottle of champagne 
was raffled off and was won by Suzanne Trinneer— a small 
recompense for our deserving Past President! 

On November 16, the Flatbush Chapter meeting featured 
Mrs. -Mildred Amico, who studied cooking under James 
Beard. She gave the group timely and valuable points on

North Nassau and South Nassau 

A joint meeting of these two groups was held at the home 
of Rita Dorgler Bartscherer on October 6. Sister George 
Aquin, chairman of the Social Science Department at the 
College, talked with, rather than to, the alumnae about 
"Your Neighbors— and You." Almost 40 alumnae were pres- 
ent, and it was a lively and enlightening evening. 

Nassau and Suffolk 

The Nassau-Suffolk Fall Luncheon was held at Carl Hoppl's 
Westbury Manor on November 18. .After a delightful luncli. 
Sister Joan de Lourdes. with her usual gav enthusiasm, 
showed slides and shared the wonderful experiences of her 
N'isit to London on a grant. Peggy .McDerlv Shea was 
chairman for this successful affair. Nassau-Suffolk is cur- 
rently planning a Christmas Party for December. 

At the short business meeting before the luncheon, the 
groups voted on a revised set of chapter bylaws.

E-M-U) group of the New Jersey Chapter was held on 
October 13. After a short business meeting. Helen Flynn 
gave a Party Sandwiches Demonstration and all members 
took part. The beautiful sandwiches were then sold— to be 
tucked away in the freezer for a party occasion or, more 
likely, (.oiisumed by hungry children or taste-testing adults. 

Bay Ridge 

On October 16 the Bay Ridge Chapter held its first meeting 
of the academic year at Fontbonne Hall. .A very popular 
faculty member. Sister Joan de Lourdes, reviewed her tour 
in England, atrompanying her humorous talk with beauti- 
ful slides, many of which she, herself, had taken. Light re- 



freshments were served, and a chance for social interchange 
occurred before the pleasant evening closed. Barbara Maher 
McConville. the new chairman, has plaruied to have Sister 
Margaret Louise talk on November 20. Sister will talk about 
and discuss the discipline of children and also the various 
types of schools for young children.

Sister Margaret Louise, chairman of the Child Study De- 
partment and director of the Preschool, tra\'eled to Wash- 
ington to speak to those who met at the home of Dorothy 
Harte McKenna on October 22. Sister's talk on sex educa- 
tion was related to the school program and what can be 
done at home to relate to the teaching in schools. It was 
ob\ious that the group was enlightened and thoroughly 
pleased with the help afforded by a leading expert in this 
field. 



Queens 

Fourteen Queens alumnae met in Mar)' Louis Academy on 
October 25 to organize a schedule for this large 525-member 
chapter. This group is desirous of getting in touch with all 
alumnae in Queens to help them become aware of their 
personal \alue in their community and to show them how 
contact with fellow alumnae can broaden and enrich their 
li\es in the various fields where their interests lie. 



Staten Island 

Bridge plaving is very popular with this chapter, and their 
-Annual Bridge, held on November 6. was as successful as 
it was enjoyable. Two undergraduates. Mary Butz and 
Peggy Mohan, accompanying themselves with guitars, en- 
tertained the group with folk songs — altogether a delightful 
Election E\e exent. 



Westchester-Connecticut 

On No\ ember 12, members of this chapter met at Mar\- 
Dowling Falvella's home to bring themselves up to date on 
colleges and collegians today, specifically S.J.C. and S.J.C. 
undergraduates. Sister Teresa .Avila represented the faculty 
and four students answered questions about curriculum, 
admissions, activities, and attitudes. Many odd and humor- 
ous comparisons were made.

.\Uimnae Leaders" Workshop on last September 30 votetl to dis- 



continue listing the engagen)enLs of alumnae after we told them 
how two crisi-s hail only narrowl) In-en averted. The crises oc- 
curred when, just before the issue was to be printetl, the alumnae 
t.illed to re(|uest that the announcements fx- removed bi^causc 
they had broken their engagements. Also, we h;ive heard that 
sometimes there was a difference between the annoimced fiance"s 
nami- and that of the alumna"s husbands, and we suggested that 
this listing Ik- discontinuetl for this rea.son also, preventing pos- 
sible future embarrassment.

Class Notes 



1921 

Hialcr Mary Francis, RGS [Eva Flinii] wrolc, in part, from //oiig 
Koiij; to Crace Reynolds: 

W'v have se\cn Sisters here: two Americans, three Chinese 
and two Filipinas who are stiidving Cantonese. We already have 
alxitit 20 girls. Keep us in prayer. No day is long enough for all 
there is to he done; besitles the Chinese have to do things in 
their own way and at their own pace. Western standards can con- 
fuse them, and make us lose what is best in them. There is so 
much that is admiral)le in them. Fulton Sheen sa\'S, "The hope 
of the Church is in the Orient." I agree. 

AlM)ut a half hour's ride from central Hong Kong, where Com- 
munist terrorists are trj'ing to disrupt business by distributing 
home-made bombs, we are nestled on a hillside, just above a 
delightful cove. We call our new center Mar)'cove, in gratitude 
to Our Lad\' for her protection during our 30 years in the mis- 
sions and as an act of confidence for the future. Then a United 
States Consul, who was arranging a partial building grant from 
the Refugee and Migration Unit, requested that we name the 
center after a prominent .American social worker. We chose 
Dr. Map.' Stanton, who has been untiring in helping our Chinese 
Sisters who go to Los Angeles for social-work study. 

The purjxjse of the center is to provide a home for refugee 
teenage girls while preparing them for eniplo\nient and eventual 
economic independence. Since migration terminated their school- 
ing, a specialized educational program geared to the needs of 
the refugee teenager is provided: classes in Chinese concentrat- 
ing on technical or commercial subjects according to each one's 
aptitudes. The courses include domestic science, handicrafts, 
hairdressing. power-machine operating; for the more capable: 
English, t)ping. stenography, and bookkeeping. In about two 
years, the average girl can be trained for emplovment. 

Just around the hill is a huge squatter settlement. Some live 
in shacks on the hillside, others on sampans in the creek, so 
close that they cannot navigate. It is to rescue girls from these 
sordid surroundings that we have come to Aberdeen. 

The ;Klministration building and part of the training center is 
nearing completion, and the site is formed for a 90-foot exten- 
sion. The Hong Kong Government granted us the land on con- 
dition that we build to the value of it. The United States Con- 
.sulate is giving us about half the amount. We must raise the rest. 
It will make me a beggar until I die. Let's hope this will make 
me a little less unworthv of m\- great patron, St. Francis of 
Assist. I am not groaning under it. The life of a missionary is 
always rewarding. God gives the hundredfold, e\en in this life. 
In spite of apparent insecuritv because of our proximitv to the 
Communist Ixjrder, we feel infinite securitx' in the arms of G<id. 

Our gratitude to St. Joseph's for its inspiring ideals, and to all 
who ha\e been so faithfulK' devoted to us throughout the vears.

ALUMNAE FUND 69 

At its May meeting, the Executive Board 
voted to endorse scholarship aid to alumnae 
daughters and other St. Joseph's students as 
the official designation for Alumnae Fund 69. 
Other designations will continue to be hon- 
ored, as the individual alurana specifies. 



ALUMNAE DANCE 

By vote of the Executive Board, an Alum- 
nae Dance will be held on Friday, October 26, 
in the Bowman Room of the Hotel Biltmore. 
Rita Marie McGrath '67, who organized the 
Alumnae-Senior Supper, will be chairman of 
the first Alumnae Association social event of 
1968-1969. Alumnae will receive complete de- 
tails in September. 



TO THE CLASS LEADERS 

Many, many thanks to all the class leaders 
for their devoted efforts again this year. 

To those whose Class Notes arrived too 
late for inclusion in this issue: Please 
note that almost half the magazine is made up 
of the Notes and the balance of it is very 
tightly packed with other news. We had to 
save your Notes for the next issue. In the 
meantime, we are continuing the reply card as 
an additional help to you for the Notes. 



TO THE ALUMNAE WITH RELATIVES IN VIET NAM 

In addition to the number of mentions in 
the Class Notes, many alumnae have told us 
personally that a son, a husband, a brother, 
a father, or some other relative was serving 
with the Armed Forces in Viet Nam. All the 
alumnae surely include them in their prayers 
for God's grace.

Executive Board News 



• All chapter officers will be in\ited to the next Workshop 
in September. 

• Elizabeth Connolly, the Association's representative to 
the American Association of University Women in New 
York, resigned after many years. Adele \'ocel, vice presi- 
dent of the Alumnae Association, was asked to take her 
place, assuming the responsibility to keep the alumnae in- 
formed of the A.A.U.W.'s activities. The Board subsequently 
voted to make this one of the duties of the vice president. 

• The Board amended the bylaws of the Constitution to 
read that no member of the Nominating Committee would 
be eligible for nomination, or renomination if she was al- 
ready a Board member. 

It also voted to clarify the bylaws to state that a "slate" 
meant only the number of vacancies to be filled, with the 
Board accepting the Nominating Committee's slate as a 
responsible selection, mainly because alumnae in recent 
years have declined to run against each other or also had 
arranged their schedules to attend meetings, only to be 
rejected on the ballot. Alumnae may still write in other 
candidates as alternates to the committee's slate. 

• A majority rejected a motion to require a quorum, a part 
of the old Constitution, because it could happen, as it has 
in the past, that there would not be enough members pres- 
ent to hold a meeting and conduct the Association's busi- 
ness. Instead, the requirement to have a majority present 
to hold a meeting was formalized. 

• The Board voted to present a plaque to the College to 
memoriahze Dr. Raymond Strassburger, who died on Janu- 
ary 20 after 32 years as a member of St. Joseph's faculty. 
Also in memory of the late Chairman of the Psycholog)' 
Department, the Board will use part of the proceeds of the 
Alumnae Luncheon to present a needed piece of equipment 
to the Psychology Department. 

• By vote of the Executive Board, nonalumnae faculty mem- 
bers who wish so, may become Honorary Alumnae and will 
receive all .Mumiiac .Association communications. 

investment Workshop 

More than 3.5 alumnae came to the College on four con- 
secutive Tue.sdays to attend the Investment Workshop, some 
with hasbands, fiances, sisters, mothers, or fathers. The 
speakers were Robert Isban, vice president of Manufac- 
turers Hanover Trust Company; Lawrence Winston, mutual 
funds specialist of E. F. Hutton and Company; John 
McConville (husband f)f Barbara Mahcr McConville), in-

On Proposed Amendment I 



Vote Yes 

Tlic Aliiiniiac Association has witnessed some magnificent 
changes at St. [oseph's during the past few years. We have 
seen the building of a grcatlv needed library and we can 
now see the steel structure for (he Dillon Child Study Cen- 
ter. The Alumnae Association has also seen some changes 
within itself. W'e have reccntlv adopted a new Constitution 
bv which the .Alumnae .Association lias granted considerable 
power to its goNcrning body, the E.\ecutive Board. .\ major- 
ity of the members on the Executi\'e Board feel we can 
give you a better Association if the Board becomes more 
representative of its members. With this in mind, we pro- 
pose an increase in the size of the Executive Board. We feel 
that this increase will foster the development of a truly 
representative Board. 

How can the Executive Board be more representative of 
the Alumnae it serves? How can we foster the introduction 
of more programs that better meet your needs and inter- 
ests? How can we revitalize our Association so that it is a 
true "Alumnae" Association? These are just a few of the 
questions that prompted my proposal for an increase in the 
size of the Executive Board. This change in the number of 
mcmbers-at-large from six to 12 will increase the size of 
the Board from 12 to 18. I readily admit that all these 
questions will not be answered by a mere increase in the 
size of the Executive Board. However, I sincerely feel that 
this is the first step, of many, which must be taken to im- 
prove alumnae representation on the Board. 

In our current Constitution, overwhelming power has 
been given to the E.xecutive Board. Every member of the 
Board recognizes the great responsibility that accompanies 
this great power and strives to handle this responsibility 
wisely. However, this is a tremendous responsibility for 12 
to handle. Can 12 truly represent over three thousand 
alumnae? I am forced to answer, "No." Better representa- 
tion will more readily flow from a larger Executive Board. 
With a larger Executive Board, more opinions will be heard, 
new ideas will be presented, better representation will be 
achieved, a better E.xecutive Board will result. The smaller 
the Board, the fewer the ideas, the more stagnant the activi- 
ties. Increased representation on the Executive Board will 
result in a more \ital and exciting Alumnae Association for 
all of us. This is our goal. 

When this proposal was presented to the Executive 
Board, the main objection presented was that it would be 
difficult to find people who would be willing to serve. I feel 
that this objection is meaningless when applied to members 
of our Alumnae Association. .Alumnae will readily serve on 
an Executive Board that thc\' feel is representative of the 
members it serves. .Alumnae will readily present their 
opinions and programs if thev feel their ideas and programs 
will be considered with open minds. Unwillingness to serve 
is the result if these principles are not met. Greater repre- 
.sentation will strengthen the groundwork for the functioning 
of these principles. Alumnae have always shown their inter- 
est in St. Joseph's. Alumnae will gladly give of their time, 
as always, to help make our As.sociation a better one. 

The best .Alumnae .Association for St. Joseph's is our goal. 
This goal will only be reached when we have answers for 
the questions proposed here. We must increase the number 
of members-at-large from six to 12 if our goal for the best 
.Alumnae .Association is to come within our reach. 

— Adele Voccl, Vice President

Vote No 

I .ini against the i^roposcd amendment to increase the voln 
membership of the E.xecutive Board by 50 percent at i ' 
time, not in principle, but for certain practical reasons. 

The Executive Board as the governing body respon>-i' 
to all the alumnae was created under the new Constitni- 
in September 196.5. With less than three years' experi< i 
the Board is still in the process of discovering its respn 
bilities. But this is only one reason that I do not think 
wise to increase its size so soon. 

The Board's 12 voting members (one for each 275 aluni 
nae) are the five officers, the immediate past president, .i; 
six members at large. The Board meets monthly from S' 
tember through May. and these fretjucnt meetings help 
Board become familiar with and help them act on 
Associations continuing program as well as devising i m 
ones. 

The voting members are elected by you for a t\vo-\ ■ 
term, which is renewable only once. Since September I'l' 
22 alumnae have served as voting members of the Bi 
(and three alumnae will join the Board this coming Si).- 
tember, bringing the total to 25). Of these 22, only two 
have been on the Board for the last three years: the Vice 
President and the Past President. To me, this indicates that 
. there is a renewal of the Board every year. Such movement, 
I think, allows more than adequately for fresh ideas, and 
making them a reality. 

Practical considerations of time and distance now limit 
voting membership to metropolitan-area residents. The eight 
chapter chairmen, w^ho are nonvoting members, and other 
officers present the views of their area's alumnae to the 
Board, both formally at the monthly meetings and annual 
workshop and informally by communicating personally to 
Board members or through the Executive Secretary. To 
have an effective and productive Board requires regular 
attendance. Increasing its membership will not increase the 
geographic representation: it will only consolidate the 
Brooklyn and Queens representation, already considerable. 

Al.so, it has not been easy for the Nominating Committee 
each year to find alumnae willing to accept even nomina- 
tion on its slate. Last year, for example, one of the members 
of the Committee volunteered to accept nomination to an 
officership for lack of interested and available candidates 
known to the Committee, ex'en though each year a call for 
nominees has been publi.shed in Alumn.^gram. 

But in addition to the Executive Board members and 
chapter chaiimen. this year over 30 alumnae served in elec- 
tive positions in the chapters, and many others have served 
as special-events chairmen. One of the Association Presi- 
dent's responsibilities is to find alumnae willing to serve as 
chairmen of the many activities in our overall program. 
Through the efforts of these chairmen, the Board members, 
the Class Leaders, and the Executive Secretary, more than 
.50 alumnae served on the various committees for the 
Luncheon and more than 70 participated in the Alumnae 
Fund Phonathon. 

To enlarge the Executive Board at this time seems to me 
to strain our Association. I think we should concentrate 
on finding more ways to interest more alumnae in our 
program for them and for St. Joseph's. 

If you cannot serve, especially, may I ask you to think 
twice before you endorse this first amendment to our new 
Constitution. In the best interests of our Association, I 
urge you to vote "No" on Amendment I.
